Girls Rock! Rochester

is recruiting new board members

We’re a nonprofit organization in Rochester that uses musical creation, collaboration, and performance as tools for cultivating self-confidence in girls and LGBTQ+ youth. Our programs include Girls Rock! Camp, Pride Rock Camp, Rock Roulette (program for adults), Amplified Teen Voices (teen leadership program), as well as year-round workshops in our accessible space at the Village Gate. We also developed a virtual musical creation experience called R.O.C. Studio in place of in-person camp during Summer 2020.

Read more about the work we do in our Board Prospectus.

Applications are due February 10, 2021.

We plan to conduct interviews and notify applicants by early March 2021.

Black Lives Matter.

The Girls Rock Camp Alliance’s Points of Unity state: “Our work is a direct attempt to amplify voices that have otherwise been told to be silent. Music, art, and creative expression are our tools in building a loud, celebratory, and formidable movement. We do not use these tools by accident; we use them because music and creative expression are accessible, community-based, collaborative, and political.” It’s time to educate ourselves, donate, march, vote, and stay engaged. We know that our conversations about race and systemic racism can, and should, happen with our youth.

Girls Rock! Rochester would like to thank our 2019 Sponsors.

GR!R relies on the generosity of a vast community of supporters to bring camp to girls, queer youth, and trans youth every summer. We value our partnerships with businesses who believe in the power of music to impact a young person’s life. Sponsoring a week of camp is a way for your business to contribute to this mission and to advertise for your business. We offer several sponsorship levels but no matter what the size, your sponsorship will make rock’n’roll dreams come true.
