Arts & Activism
Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is a non-profit music and mentoring program that empowers girls and women through music education, volunteerism, and activities that foster self-respect, leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.
This FREE after-school and summer program provides an exciting opportunity for teens to learn about the powerful combination of music and social justice, develop practical journalism and new technology skills and most importantly, have fun!
Teen women* from moderate to low-income backgrounds gain valuable experience participating in digital music & media workshops, as well as building a podcast segment from beginning to end. Field trips to NYC-area cultural events, museums, and community gatherings will expand their social and cultural awareness while broadening their educational and career aspirations. In the summer, eligible participants from the Arts & Activism program will be invited to a 6-week, paid summer fellowship, offering program support for Willie Mae Rock Camp’s summer programs.
