NOTE FOR NEW VOLUNTEERS: Our volunteer pool is ever-growing and we want to get to know each and every one of our new members (welcome!). We’ll be scheduling informal interviews with all applicants prior to camp week position placement. During these interviews, we’ll begin paperwork in order for each volunteer to be background checked, which is a requirement prior to working with our campers. We request that volunteers donate between $17 – $35 to offset the cost of their background check. In some cases, background checks performed by/for other institutions can be transferred. Please speak with our Operations Manager, Kit Curl (kit@girlsrockchicago.org), for more information.

There will be a mandatory volunteer orientation for all new and returning volunteers (We are planning two sessions: one on a weekend and another on a weeknight).

Volunteers must also review our Volunteer Manual (available online here).

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at volunteer@girlsrockchicago.org

Not sure how you want to help? Get the details on camp week volunteer positions here.


Girls Rock! Chicago welcomes all volunteers who are women, transgender (regardless of identity) and/or gender non-conforming to apply for camp-week positions. Positions outside of camp week are open to everyone. We are committed to providing a safe space for everyone, as well as educating staff, volunteers, and community members in order to create an inclusive environment for all.

Thanks for applying! We look forward to a great camp season this summer and could not do that without your contribution to this epic harmony.
