Music education is only one piece of the GRCB mission. At GRCB, music education and performance provide an interactive, hands-on approach to teaching abstract skills like confidence and persistence. By providing opportunities to build musical skills, find and trust their voices, forge positive relationships with peers and mentors, and uncover their potential, GRCB’s programs have transformed the lives of over 600 of Boston area girls since 2010.
What the girls accomplish musically in a 5-day period is remarkable on its own, but the impact of participating in GRCB goes beyond simply receiving music education. We use music and performance as a vehicle to eradicate limiting myths about gender in our society. We create space where girls are encouraged to sing out, speak up, and make a lot of noise. As one of the few organizations providing creative/musical opportunities focusing on the empowerment of girls and community building, GRCB fills an important niche in Greater Boston.
The percentage of girls who agreed or strongly agreed to the statement, “I have good ideas” increased from 73% to 95%.
There was also a 36% increase in girls who strongly agreed with the statement “I can accomplish/reach goals I set for myself.”
