Band Coach Position: Band coaches are volunteers with experience playing music and setting up equipment. They are assigned to a band on the first day of camp, and spend the week working with the band, alongside the band manager. Band coaches fulfill the same role as band managers, as well as help the band set up equipment, check levels, and troubleshoot sound problems. Coaches may work with a manager who has little or no musical experience.

Time commitment: Mon-Fri: 1:30-5:00pm (optional volunteer meeting every day,5:15-5:45pm).

Band Manager Position: Each band is assigned a band manager and a band coach who works with them in band practice and accompanies them to workshops. Band managers help guide the songwriting process in band practice by helping the group set goals, giving constructive feedback, and mediating conflicts. No musical experience is required for this position; youth work experience is recommended. Managers without musical experience will work with a coach who has musical experience.

Time commitment: Mon-Fri: 1:30-5:00pm (optional volunteer meeting every day, 5:15-5:45pm).

Bay Area Girls Rock Camp welcomes campers who self-identify as female, trans, or gender non-conforming. Bay Area Girls Rock Camp also welcomes individuals who self-identify as female or gender non-conforming to apply for leadership volunteer positions at camp. Non-leadership volunteer roles are open to people of all gender identities.

A special note to male-identified allies: Bay Area Girls Rock Camp is primarily led by and for women and girls. We also value diversity, inclusion, and sensitivity towards all individuals, regardless of gender identity or expression. The organization welcomes the support of male-identified allies, and expects male-identified allies who would like to volunteer to respect the importance of leadership by women.

Our campers reflect the rich diversity of the Bay Area; they come from a wide range of neighborhoods and socio-economic backgrounds, and two-thirds are youth of color. We strive to create a board, staff and volunteer base that reflects this diversity, and strongly encourage people of color to apply.
