Girls Rock Campaign Boston is looking for volunteers to support GRCB BEATS at sites in Somerville and Dorchester!
Learn more and apply to volunteer today: BEATS Volunteer Application
GRCB BEATS is our in-school after school program. During BEATS girls, transgender, and gender-non-conforming youth create music electronically, write and perform original songs, record, create music videos and so much more!
Each volunteer works with a band of 2-3 youth, helping them stay on track and supporting them as they create an original song, record and produce a music video. You do not need to have any experience with electronic music creation or video production to volunteer for this program but experience in songwriting, production, and electronic music creation is a plus! There will be a volunteer training on the tools used during the program.
We are seeking volunteers for two locations in Fall of 2019. If you are interested in volunteering for one or more of these sites, please complete the application: BEATS Volunteer Application
GRCB BEATS @ MCA: Thursdays 3:15-5:00, Mother Caroline Academy in Dorchester, Exact Dates TBD October-December 2019.
GRCB BEATS @ SPS: Wednesdays 3:45-5:15, Argenziano School, September 18 – December 18, 2019.

Youth who attend GRCB BEATS come from a wide range of economic experiences, ethnic identities, gender identities, & neighborhoods, and more than half self-identify as youth of color. We strive to create a volunteer base that reflects this diversity, and strongly encourage people of color, people who are gender non-binary and/or trans, and any folks who come from traditionally oppressed experiences to become volunteers and mentors for Girls Rock Campaign Boston. We ALL need role models.
