The pilot After School Program was a grand success! Thanks to the amazing students, volunteers and community members who participated and cheered along. We’ll keep you posted about new programming!
Each summer, Girls Rock Charleston holds a one-week day camp for girls and transgender youth ages 9 to 17. Campers form bands and take instrument classes in guitar, bass, keyboards, or drums and also participate in workshops about topics such as Feminism 101, Local Social Justice History, Self-Defense, Bodies and Consent, and Resistance Through Art & Music. At the end of camp week, bands perform original songs at a live showcase event in front of family, friends, and Charleston community members.
The Junior Counselor program is open to girls and transgender youth who are of high school age (rising freshman to seniors). Junior Counselors will participate in most of the above mentioned camp activities and also have opportunities to take leadership roles throughout the week. This may include co-teaching instrument classes or workshops, setting up gear throughout the day, helping with morning and afternoon assemblies, and more!
