Our 2020-2021 Virtual Programs

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Girls Rock! DC has moved all of our activities online. Learn more below.

In order to follow prevailing health guidance and prioritize the well-being of our Girls Rock! DC participants, we are not holding in person programs. Instead, we had an incredible virtual Summer Camp and a Fall virtual workshop series in 2020, and have some amazing virtual programs in store for 2021!

We know that when times get tough, we turn to the arts, and so we’re committed to continue holding space for DC’s young folks to express themselves, create, collaborate, and build something beautiful together! 


Girls Rock! DC After-School Program (GR!ASP) is happening February 1 – March 27, 2021. GR!ASP is an 8-week virtual after-school music education program for young folks ages 8 to 18 in the DC area. GR!ASPers learn to play an instrument, form a band, write an original song, and perform it at a big virtual concert!

Girls Rock! DC is facilitating free online workshops and events for youth throughout the year! We’ll be covering art, music, social justice, and all kinds of fun topics. Want to lead or suggest a workshop? Email us!


Our youth engaged with local teaching artists on subjects like Songwriting, Protest Percussion, Block Printing from Home, Using Soundtrap, Abolition and the Arts, Music Entrepreneurship and much more! During lunchtime, campers watched virtual concerts featuring some of the DMVs coolest artists and bands! Cinema Hearts, Dutchie Dutch, Clear Channel, Lightmare, and DJ Geena Marie also offered Q&As where campers asked about everything from the business of music to songwriting techniques.
