About Girls Rock Denver
Girls Rock Denver is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping girls find the self-confidence, strength, and communication skills necessary to become leaders in their lives and their communities.
GRD, a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center & an affiliate of the Girls Rock Camp Alliance, is CO's first nonprofit girls rock camp. In 2012, we are hosting our 4th annual summer day camp open to Colorado girls ages 8-18 regardless of musical or economic background. During camp, girls will receive instrument instruction, form a band, write an original song, and participate in workshops and activities designed to build self-esteem and encourage self-expression. Camp will culminate in a public showcase performance of the girls' songs.
Girls Rock Denver seeks to empower young women and girls by putting instruments in their hands and unveiling what they already possess in their feet, fingertips, vocal cords, hearts, and minds.
- Girls should be seen and heard.
- Potential is not dictated by gender.
- In providing girls with a nonjudgmental space in which to be themselves.
- In a girl's right to confidence, self-reliance, and courage.
- Girls should be encouraged to express themselves with creativity and enthusiasm.
- In the power of women and girls learning from each other.
