Girls Rock NC Is Turning 10 & They Need Your Support!

Since 2003, Girls Rock NC has been developing music mentoring programming for communities in North Carolina. It became the third organization in the country to provide this unique programming. The first camp was held in 2003 for 29 girls at Carolina Friends School, and today Girls Rock NC serves over 200 girls each summer in Durham, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh. 

Over these last 10 years, the community has helped Girls Rock NC grow and expand their meaningful programming by volunteering, sending their daughters to camp, being a camper, donating, and offering support in other ways. This year, Girls Rock NC intends to push their mission to empower women and girls through creative expression even further. They will host six Rock and Roll Day Camps for girls, a Girls Rock Action League Overnight camp (16-18 year old girls), Women’s Rock Retreat Weekend, and after school programs.

They are also happy to announce they are currently working to find a permanent home for Girls Rock NC to house and expand full time programming. This organization has big plans and they need your help!
