Girls Rock Campaign Boston empowers girls, women, and youth and adults with marginalized gender identities to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through musical education and performance.
What We Do
Girls Rock Campaign Boston (GRCB) is a volunteer-driven music and mentorship organization that offers year-round programming to girls, women, and youth and adults with marginalized gender identities in the Boston area.
We believe that in order to become leaders in a world that frequently minimizes the voices of girls and youth with marginalized gender identities, these youth need an enriching environment with positive mentors to encourage a healthy sense of self and confidence in their abilities. We are building a supportive community in Boston that uses hands-on music education and performance as a vehicle to encourage confidence and collaboration while fostering creativity and self-expression.
Each program is facilitated by female, trans and gender-nonconforming volunteers who guide youth as they form bands, learn how to play an instrument (guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, vocals, or electronic music), compose original songs and perform. There is no experience necessary to attend and we provide all instruments and equipment.
Girls Rock Campaign Boston is a 501(c)3 non profit, feminist organization. By making knowledge accessible and providing a safe space for youth and adults, GRCB is a key element in bringing about necessary social change in our community.
