Virtual Camp Volunteer Opportunities
Join us for virtual camp July 6-31, 2020
Thank you for your interest in Girls Rock Dallas. We love our volunteers! We are 100% volunteer run, and volunteers help fulfill our mission by giving their hearts and time to make each moment special for future rock stars.
There are a lot of reasons to volunteer your time to Girls Rock Dallas. One of those reasons is the good feeling you get when you make a difference in a young person’s life. Another reason is that Girls Rock Dallas is a great organization dedicated to empowering campers through music education and cultivating higher self-esteem and confidence.
And last, but not least, you get to meet a lot of cool people! Camp is truly a fun experience. The rewards alone of watching the campers evolve during the week display the impact Girls Rock Dallas has.
Girls Rock Dallas is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering girls, women, trans and gender-expansive individuals through music education. Because our work involves minors, as part of the application process we must conduct an interview for new volunteers and a criminal background check on all volunteers. Volunteers must complete and sign a background check form that will be provided at a later date. A training session is required for band coaches and instrument instructors.
Important Upcoming Dates
- Volunteer info sessions: May 30
- Volunteer application deadline: June 15
- Volunteer training: June 27 (Required for band coaches and instrument instructors)
- Camp: July 6-31
Music experience required, once a week video posting (1-2 spots for each instrument: vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, electronic drums)
Our campers possess a varying range of age and skill level. Some have never touched a musical instrument in their lives. Instrument instructors willdesign their own 4-week curriculum (pre-recorded 10-15 minute lesson) for the campers. Feedback and answers for our campers throughout the week. We always encourage all of our volunteers to make it their own. We are looking for guitar, bass, vocal, keyboards and electronic drums. Instrument instructors. Female, trans and gender expansive welcome.
Songwriting/instrument knowledge needed, 2 hours a week (5-6 spots available)
Band coaches are assigned one band to assist in the writing process for their song. You will help the campers during band selection on the first day and assist them each camp day in learning how to play as a group, both musically and interpersonally. Female, trans and gender expansive welcome.
No musical experience necessary.
Each of our workshops values developing life skills and self-esteem, as well as encouraging creativity, self-expression and awareness. Examples of workshops that have been taught at other rock camps: History of Women in Rock, Self-Defense, Image & Identity, Songwriting, Teen Issues, Recording your Band, Engineering & Lighting and Band T-Shirt Screen Printing. Female, trans and gender expansive welcome.
Girls Rock Dallas wants to financially support our community, especially during this time. We are currently offering stipends to help offset our volunteers.
