Yukon Girls Rock Camp Volunteer Form
Be part of the change!

Yukon Girls Rock Camp is a social justice camp that uses rock music to amplify self-identifying girls' voices for healing, growth and change. Camp is held July 17-21, 2017 with the showcase performance at the Dawson City Music Festival Saturday, July 22nd. In one week, campers learn an instrument, form a band, write a song, and perform it live on the DCMF main stage!

We're looking for volunteers to fill positions for a variety of knowledge, skills, availability & genders. We want to create a meaningful and rewarding experience for you, and aim to expose campers to a variety of "women", in hopes that they connect and identify with at least one person during camp.

If you don't know your availability yet, thats ok! We'll be in contact with you closer to the date.

Individuals who identify as women/gender non-conforming are preferred in mentorship roles and may require a vulnerable sectors check. Self-identified men are welcome in supporting roles.

Mentoring/supervising volunteers should participate in an orientation and training session (~ 2 hours).
