musical & non-musical volunteers for summer camp




530 18th Street
United States


WHO: Bay Area Girls Rock Camp is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers young people through music, promoting an environment that fosters self-confidence, creativity and teamwork. Although our camp centers the experiences of young women, we are committed to gender justice and creating an inclusive environment that supports a wide range of marginalized gender identities and expressions.

WHAT: Our summer camp is a week-long program for young people ages 8-18. There are three sessions. Campers attend instrument lessons, form a band, collaboratively write an original song, participate in daily music and empowerment-related workshops, and perform with their band at a live showcase at the end of the week. We are looking for volunteers to help move in, facilitate and move out camp.

WHEN: Below are all the dates we are looking for volunteers. If you can only help for part of the time listed, please apply. Volunteer for one hour or a whole week, every minute helps!
