Volunteering at Our Programs
We have a variety of musical and non-musical volunteer positions for all of our programs, and we post applications several months in advance. Positions include instrument instructor, band manager, band coach, roadie, workshop leader, kitchen crew, front desk crew, and more.
Bay Area Girls Rock Camp welcomes campers who self-identify as female, trans, or gender non-conforming. Bay Area Girls Rock Camp also welcomes individuals who self-identify as female or gender non-conforming to apply for leadership volunteer positions at camp. Non-leadership volunteer roles are open to people of all gender identities.
A special note to male-identified allies: Bay Area Girls Rock Camp is primarily led by and for women and girls. We also value diversity, inclusion, and sensitivity towards all individuals, regardless of gender identity or expression. The organization welcomes the support of male-identified allies, and expects male-identified allies who would like to volunteer to respect the importance of leadership by women.
Our campers reflect the rich diversity of the Bay Area; they come from a wide range of neighborhoods and socio-economic backgrounds, and two-thirds are youth of color. We strive to create a board, staff and volunteer base that reflects this diversity, and strongly encourage people of color to apply.
