Mission Statement

Girls Rock Campaign Boston empowers girls, women, and youth and adults with marginalized gender identities to believe in themselves by building a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through musical education and performance.

Description

Girls Rock Campaign Boston (GRCB) works to eradicate all the limiting myths about music and gender by helping girls, women, and youth and adults with marginalized gender identities speak up, sing out, and make a lot of noise!

GRCB is a volunteer-driven music education and mentorship organization that offers innovative and transformative programming to over 230 girls and youth with marginalized gender identities, ages 8 to 17, in the Boston area each year.

We believe that in order to become leaders in a world that frequently minimizes the voices of youth with marginalized gender identities, these youth deserve to learn, create, and grow in an environment full of positive, reflective, mentors to encourage a healthy sense of self and inspire creativity.

By connecting youth with positive role models, GRCB counters the myriad overt and subtle gendered messages about career and social expectations that youth absorb. GRCB’s programs allow youth to experience something bold and new while receiving unconditional support along the way. Immersed in an inclusive community of peers and mentors, they are encouraged to use their voices, take risks that they may have avoided in other environments, and build their resilience.
