Volunteering at camp

Past volunteers have done everything from to teaching drums at camp and photographing our End-of-Camp Extravaganza performance. Whatever your talents, chances are there’s 
a niche for you at Girls Rock Detroit.

Girls Rock Detroit welcomes both volunteers and campers who identify as female, transgender, or gender expansive to apply for camp week positions that are directly camper facing. Positions that are not camper-facing, as well as those outside of camp week, are open to individuals of any gender identity or expression. We invite and encourage all our allies to contact info@girlsrockdetroit.org to find out more about getting involved.

 

As GRD encourages female, transgender, and/or gender expansive individuals to join us on our camp week journey, we are committed to providing a safe space for everyone. This means both educating staff, volunteers, and our fellow community members, in addition to leading by example in order to establish and maintain an inclusive environment for all.

Can’t be there all week? There are also multiple part-time positions available including everything from snack delivery 
to presenting hour-long workshops.

To be considered for a camp week volunteer role, all applicants must:

PARTICIPATE

in a brief interview with a GRD staff member

ATTEND

a mandatory Volunteer Orientation session

REVIEW

the volunteer manual

COMPLETE

a fingerprint background check

Year Round Volunteer Opportunities

If you can’t commit to camp week itself, don’t worry—we still need you! Whether you can help spread the gospel of GRD from behind a booth at a music festival, or just showing up to support the campers when they rock out at their End-of-Camp Performance Extravaganza, we truly value your support.

 

Email info@girlsrockdetroit.org anytime to see what’s coming up and find out how we can use your help.

 

We’ll also love you if can donate gear (new or used); donate T-shirts, art supplies or other crafty gems for camp-week activities; host a benefit show, or a fundraising event at your place of business; or just make a donation in any amount — because every 
dollar counts!

Volunteer Asks
