GET LOUD WITH US 2019

SESSION 1: July 22-28 | SESSION 2: AUG 5-11

During GR!C's summer sessions, youth meet and form bands, learn how to play an instrument (guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, or vocals), compose & record original songs and perform live at a prominent local rock venue – all in one week’s time! Throughout each session, GR!C also provides daily workshops geared towards building self-esteem and encouraging self-expression and awareness.

Our programs are about way more than just rocking out! We are committed to creating an inclusive environment that supports and welcomes a wide range of marginalized gender identities and expressions. We welcome girls, trans, and gender nonconforming youth. We have cultivated a supportive community of peers and positive mentors that encourage and teach youth to be their own rock heroes, allowing them to think differently about limits that may be placed upon them by our society.

OTHER PROGRAMS

YOUTH ACTION COMMITTEE (NAME PENDING)

Girls Rock! Chicago’s Youth Action Committee provides our past and current campers, ages 14-16, a new and unique opportunity to be involved at the highest level of GR!C. Our committee members will meet bi-monthly over the next year to work on an action in honor of Girls Rock! Chicago. This could bloom into a workshop series at the next summer camp, a community action related to a social justice cause, a presentation for our community, or a social media campaign. Stay tuned to see what amazing ideas our youth-led committee has in store!

The next meeting for YAC is TBD – check back soon!
