Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help us move equipment at the start of our programs; pass out fliers for programs and events; do outreach on social media sites.

Geographic areas served: SF Bay Area

Programs: *Girls Rock Summer Camp: a week-long program in which girls learn to play an instrument (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, vocals, or turntables), form a band, a write an original song to perform at the end-of-program showcase.
*Girls Rock After School Program: a 10-week version of the Summer Camp program.
*Women's Rock Camp: a 3-day version of Summer Camp for women ages 19 and up. All proceeds directly benefit our youth programs.

Mission:
The Bay Area Girls Rock Camp (BAGRC) empowers girls through music, promoting an environment that fosters self-confidence, creativity and teamwork. The BAGRC strives to challenge gender stereotypes, encourage collaboration and tolerance among peers, and provide a comfortable space for people of all backgrounds to express themselves. Through music lessons, workshops, group activities and performance, girls acquire skills that will help guide them throughout their lives.
Results:
We have expanded our programming each year to meet the growing demand in our community for our innovative programming. Our first summer camp, held in 2008, served 65 girls; this year, in our 6th year of programming, we will serve 265 girls. Similarly, our first after school program served 19 girls; this year we will serve more than 100 girls.
