Girls Rock Campaign Boston, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to empower girls and women to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence and collaboration through music education and performance, has seen exponential growth in the past year! We need your help to continue expanding and improving the work that we do!
In 2017 we served 210 youth, 90 adults and debuted 66 bands! The year 2018 is going to be JAM PACKED with even more GRCB programming as we continue to develop curriculum for our new after school program, launch a year round workshop series, and support more youth leadership opportunities.
As we head into our 8th year, we need your help to ensure that we are able to continue to provide quality, year round, programming that allows girls to develop a sense of confidence that will carry over into all aspects of their lives, empowering them to recognize and respond to discrimination.
Your contribution will help sustain the sounds of our year round calendar of programs and launch girls into their futures. Our goal is to raise $30,000 by December 31st – please make your donation today!
This year we will continue to expand the reach of our mission and ensure the sustainability of this organization. Here is some of what we will accomplish with your support:
Support GRCB BEATS: In 2017 we launched our first in school, after school program, GRCB BEATS, a free program currently serving the East Somerville Community School and Mother Caroline Academy in Dorchester. Girls form bands, create music electronically and direct music videos, encouraging collaboration and self-expression while gaining technical skills and expanding their 21st century skills. We are working to inspire girls to move from consumers to producers, changing the way they think about their own potential and giving more girls and women a voice in our society, a key element in combating gender inequality and creating social change.
Promote Youth Leadership: GRCB offers empowering leadership opportunities during our after school programs and summer sessions and we are launching a new program for in 2018, the Youth Action Leadership Lab (YALL). YALL will engage youth more deeply in our grassroots movement and support the development of feminist, anti-racist youth leaders through cultural organizing practices. We are committed to the future of GRCB and believe that collaborative partnerships between the youth and organizers will lead to greater outcomes for our programming and redefine who has the ability to make change in the world.
Continued Community Collaborations: In 2017, GRCB worked with various organization to be able to provide free programming to youth outside of our sessions. In 2018, collaborations will continue to play a major role as we partner with organizations in the greater Boston area to provide free, quality programming that will allow GRCB to expand our reach and raise girls’ awareness of community resources and opportunities available to them in our community.
