Girls Rock Campaign Boston empowers girls to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through musical education and performance.
Girls Rock Campaign Boston (GRCB) works to eradicate all the limiting myths about music and gender by helping girls speak up, sing out, and make a lot of noise!
We offer a volunteer run summer program for girls aged 8-17. During each session, girls have the opportunity to form bands, learn how to play an instrument (guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, or vocals), compose an original song and perform live at a local rock venue - all in one week’s time. In addition to the band practices and instrumental lessons, GRCB also provides workshops geared towards self-esteem building and self-expression. We also offer Club GRCB, an after school program for girls in 7-12 grades, and Ladies Rock Camp Boston for women 21 and over.
We have cultivated a supportive community of peers and positive female mentors that encourage and teach girls to be their own rock heroes, allowing them to think differently about limits that may be placed upon them by our society.
Girls Rock Campaign Boston is a 501(c)(3) non profit, feminist organization. By making knowledge accessible and providing a safe space for girls and women, GRCB is a key element in bringing about necessary social change in our community.
