GR!DC’s Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors consists of five great folks that are super devoted to Girls Rock! DC and come with skills and experience that help build capacity, but most essentially, reflect our youth and their potential.
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 ARE:
- 14-18 years old by the first meeting of their cohort;
- former participants in at least one previous Girls Rock program (this includes Girls Rock! DC Summer Camp, Youth Leaders, After-School Program, or a Girls Rock program in a different city);
- passionate about creating change in their community!
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 4-8 hours per month on Youth Leader responsibilities. Youth Leaders will be compensated for their hard work with a stipend.
Youth Leaders meet by zoom one or two times per month for about two hours each with other Girls Rock! DC adult leaders to plan Girls Rock! DC programs, usually on a weekday evening or weekend afternoon. Youth Leaders help with outreach and advertising for Girls Rock! DC. Youth Leaders also have the opportunity to design and lead workshops and other activities throughout the year.
