Girls Rock! DC is back in person! We continue to follow prevailing health guidance and prioritize the well-being of our participants and community members as we provide spaces for DC’s young folks to express themselves, create, collaborate, and build something beautiful together. 

Check out our upcoming programs:

Learn to express yourself with music!

Join Us! No music knowledge needed!

We’ll teach you how to create music and collaborate with fellow campers to write an original song.

Help us make programs accessible to all DC youth!

We offer all of our youth programs on a radical sliding scale that makes them free to anyone who needs them, because we believe that quality music education and supportive community should be accessible to all. Support our work with a financial or in-kind donation today.

Girls Rock! DC programs are run by volunteers! Hug them (if they like hugs).

We have roles for all skill levels and time availability. Even if you don’t know a thing about music!

“Girls Rock has been my favorite experience of my entire existence and is something I don’t plan to ever let go of.”

Girls Rock! DC Program Goals

  1. To provide our participants with self-empowerment, self-advocacy, and leadership skills and guidance to use these skills in a positive and ethical manner, as well as opportunities to practice these skills.
  2. To provide our participants with the team-working skills and practice spaces they need to successfully participate in a collaborative musical group and create their own original musical expression.
  3. To develop among our participants a sense that they can affect positive social change through the tool of music.
  4. To provide basic and advanced instruction in instrumentation and creative composition of a song.
  5. To introduce participants to the experiences of musical recording and performance.
