Join Girls Rock Philly's Youth Action Council!

Established in fall 2015, Youth Action Council serves as the leadership body that informs GRP’s programming. In this dynamic leadership space, returning GRP participants ages 15-19 engage in trainings and skill-building, contribute to programmatic decision-making, collaborate with other organizations on addressing emergent issues, and developing their own projects that support GRP’s mission and vision!

YAC aims to serve as a leadership body for GRP teens, but the exact scope of its work is explored and defined by each cohort. Possible activities include:

**Help inform year-round GRP programs like workshops and after-school programs
**Girls Rock Resistance! Events: Social Justice teach-ins and youth organized actions
**Attend skill-building workshops and/or trainings
**Writing and performing original music
**Attend at contribute to GRP’s monthly board meetings
**Organize teen social gatherings like post-camp summer mixtape listening party
**Shape curriculum for summer camp sessions

All meetings will have food, and tokens will be available as needed. Meetings will take place at the GRP Headquarters at 1428 Germantown Ave, and other community gathering and co-working spaces in Philly.

We want to pick dates/times that work best for this new group of YAC members, so be sure to give us as much information as possible about your schedule and availability in your application!

The term for this spring cohort will be late October- December 2018. It is highly recommended that members of the Fall 2018 cohort be previous participants in GRP programming.
