GR!DC 2017 Youth Leadership at Camp Application!
It's Girls Rock! DC's first ever youth leadership program at camp! Youth leaders will be a group of 5-10 teens that meet to strengthen communication and leadership skills as well as to make GR!DC more youth-driven. The program aims to give you a louder voice in deciding GR!DC’s programming.

This summer's Youth Leadership Program is the first step in creating a permanent, year-round youth decision-making presence at Girls Rock! DC. It was formed to be a leadership body for GR!DC teens, but the exact scope of its work will be explored and defined by its 2017 members. Additionally, this summer's youth leaders will have the chance to develop into a year-round youth advisory board that will consult with the adult leadership team to make decisions about GR!DC's future priorities and actions.

Youth leaders will still be campers and will still receive instrument instruction, participate in workshops, and form DJ crews or bands. They will also:
-Decide on a cooler name for the program than just "Youth Leadership Program."
-Collaboratively plan and lead a workshop of their choosing for the other campers.
-Help screen and approve workshops on topics proposed by adult volunteers.
-Brainstorm camp themes
-Choose assembly topics, both related to social change and camp-specific tasks. Help plan and lead assemblies.
-Decide what their other projects will be! If you have ideas about what else we should do, tell us below!

You are eligible to apply if:
-You complete this year's summer camper application
-You will be 16-18 years old at this summer's rock camp (June 26-30, 2017).
-You have participated in a Girls Rock program at least once before (this includes Girls Rock! DC Summer Camp, After-School Program, or a Girls Rock program in a different city).
-You care about creating change in your community!

Where/how often will we meet?
The meeting dates have not been chosen as we want to pick dates/times that work best for this group of members. So in your application, be sure to give us as much information as possible about your schedule and availability! Remember, youth leaders will begin meeting in the weeks & months BEFORE camp.

Spring 2017 Application Process
1. Submit the application form by the deadline (April 10, 2017)
2. Participate on a phone interview with GR!DC (we’ll reach out to you!)
3. Stay tuned for announcement of new members (around April 17, 2017)

Participants will be selected by the GR!DC leadership team on the basis of eligibility and with an aim to ensure that participant's viewpoints and experiences are reflective of GR!DC's camper base as a whole. There will be an opportunity for compensation - more information to come!

The Youth Leadership Program will be a dynamic leadership space where members will engage in training and skill-building, contribute to programmatic decision-making and also have opportunities for developing their own projects that support GR!DC’s mission and vision!
