* General Volunteer Application

There are all kinds of support we need to make rock camp happen! You do not need music experience to participate in Rock Camp! While most roles are reserved for women, trans and gender non-conforming peoples, there are some roles that are open to folks of all genders.

GRP’s Summer Rock Camp centers women, trans and gender-expansive people. We are committed to trans inclusion and gender self determination. We use the term “trans” in its most inclusive sense, as an umbrella term encompassing: transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, Two-Spirit people, and more generally, anyone whose gender identity or gender expression is non-conforming and/or different from their gender assigned at birth


* Lunchtime Performances!

Do you want to play for a crowd full of campers and over 50 volunteers at Girls Rock Philly's 13th annual summer camps this July?

All genres, styles encouraged to apply! We will prioritize bands with people of color, women, trans and gender-variant members. **This form is also linked in the general volunteer application.


Creating Access

* Request a Volunteer Stipend

Girls Rock Philly is excited to announce that we will be offering stipend this year in order to make volunteering as accessible as possible.

We are so happy that Girls Rock Philly is build up by love, care and devotion of 100+ year-round volunteer and we want to make it possible to more people to be a part of it.

**To be transparent, we cannot guarantee that you will receive the amount you ask for. We will be taking many factors into account when trying to distribute the fund we have available -- including the total number of hours you are volunteering. We will do our best to make camp volunteering as accessible for as many people as possible.

* Showcase/Recording Crew

The Saturday showcases are exciting days for our community to come together, see camper bands perform original songs, and celebrate. They are also important days for getting new folks interested in Girls Rock Philly and raising funds to support our ongoing work.

Sunday recording is the culminating day of camp for our campers. Each band arrives at the recording studio with their band coaches at their given time slot and records their song!

Use this form if you're available to volunteer at our summer camp weekend showcases or recording sessions! **This form is also linked in the general volunteer application.


* Factiliate a Workshop!

We're looking for workshops that promote our mission to empower our participants through music education, and activities that foster a joyful culture of creativity, critical thinking, and collective care. We're excited to co-create a space for participants to come together and build community based on shared experiences and sharing experiences, and are eager to support new and returning facilitators do just that!


 

* Request Childcare

We know having childcare available can mean the difference between saying yes or no to participating at Rock Camp. We create a Childcare Team of superstar volunteers who love hanging out with the kiddos!

**Please let us know as soon as you know whether you will (or will not) need childcare during camp. It’s difficult and stressful for us to find someone at the last minute, and while we hope to avoid over scheduling our volunteers, its much easier to be send someone home than it is to call someone in. Thank you for overcommunicating your needs to us!
