Girls Rock Athens is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving girls and gender expansive youth in the Athens and Northeast Georgia area.
We believe in music as a tool for:
Encouraging creative self-expression
Amplifying voices to create social change
Developing radical self-esteem and personal empowerment
Girls Rock Camp Athens (known as We Rock Camp starting in 2019!) is our week-long youth summer camp for ages 9 to 15 and is the flagship program of our organization. We also offer workshops and other programming throughout the year, including a condensed version of our summer rock camp just for adults. Girls Rock Athens values inclusion and welcome all campers regardless of background, race, abilities, economic status, gender identity or expression, size, nationality, religion, learning styles, citizenship status, or sexual orientation.
Don’t let the name fool you - Girls Rock Athens isn’t just about rock ‘n’ roll! We celebrate the diverse contributions folx of marginalized genders have made throughout the history of music across the genre spectrum. So whether you’re into rock, pop, hip hop, electronic, country, or classical, Girls Rock Athens is here to help you crank the volume!
Girls Rock Athens is a community organization - which means we need our community to help us thrive and grow!
If our mission speaks to you, we have a number of ways you can get involved. Whether it’s through volunteering at an event, donating as a monthly sustainer, or becoming a corporate sponsor, we value and appreciate your support - every contribution matters!
