Helping girls and women empower themselves through music since 2009.
In 2015, for the first time ever YOU and your support made it possible for Girls Rock! Rhode Island to double the rock with not one, but two Girls Rock Camps! YOU helped us provide this transformative experience to more campers than ever before. As in the past, campers learned instruments, joined bands, wrote songs, and performed them live for hundreds of fans!
What are some other cool things about doubling the rock with YOUR support?
We provided spaces that cater to campers’ developmental needs with one camp for 11-13 year olds and another for 14-17 year olds!
We created 10 brand new workshops like: Media Literacy 2.0, Sexual Harassment, and Home Recording!
These empowerment-based workshops led to awesome lyrics such as these from the band Danger Zone:
“Well I got something to tell ya’
You can be a lawyer, a teacher, an actress
We, the leaders, are sharp as a cactus
The world doesn’t define our success
Because we know we’re the best
Are we perfect? No!
No, no, no!
But that’s okay”
The rock didn’t stop when September came around and we have been engaging with participants all year in a variety of ways, including:
Group Lessons for youth and adults, with sessions in the fall and spring!
A partnership with Sophia Academy, a private school serving girls from low income families, to create the Sophia Sings! music program for their students. In the 2015-2016 school year it is even a part of their school day curriculum!
Ladies Rock Camp, which is a unique space for adult women to express themselves!
Our Gear Loan program, which has really ramped up, with more than 50 participants/volunteers borrowing gear so far this year!
With all this, YOUR support has helped us provide scholarships to 2 out of 3 participants this year! We want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to have their voices heard as a part of our programming. That’s why we are committed to continuing to offer scholarships across all of our programs in 2016, and we hope that you will continue to support this, as well.
YOUR donation can be made here, safely and securely via Razoo.
Thanks for your support!
