GR!DC’s Youth Leaders

At GR!DC we do all we can to make sure youth voices are heard, and for that, they need to be amplified.

Our Youth Leaders are teens that meet to strengthen their communication and leadership skills and make GR!DC more youth-driven. They give young folks a louder voice in deciding GR!DC’s priorities, direction, and major organizational decisions.


Youth Leaders commit to working with Girls Rock! DC for minimum six months. They can serve multiple terms, there is no limit. They will spend about 12 hours per month on Youth Leader responsibilities. Youth Leaders will be compensated for their hard work with a stipend. Youth Leaders help with outreach and advertising for Girls Rock! DC and have the opportunity to design and lead events, workshops and other activities throughout the year.
