Girls Rock! DC was founded by DC musicians and music fans who didn’t see themselves – women, non-binary, transgender, and gender-expansive folks – represented in the music they loved. They set out to create a supportive and inclusive program where kids could learn about music and culture that is relevant to them, from role models who come from their own community. Participants represent a wide range of economic experiences, ethnic identities, gender identities, and neighborhoods. Youth of color make up the majority and more than half of participants receive financial aid (no one is turned away). They enjoy private concerts from local musicians and workshops from local educators. After school and in summer camps, they receive instrument instruction, form bands, and compose original music. Every year, Girls Rock! serves more than 100 youth (and 20 adults) who rise up and rock out!
