GRCB is committed to providing ongoing training and support needed to help volunteers be successful in their roles, additional training and workshops may become available during the BEATS semester. 

Additional Information

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. 

This is a direct service role that requires a CORI background check.
