Girls Rock Charleston 2017 Teen Leader Application
Thank you for your interest in being a Teen Leader at Girls Rock Charleston’s summer camp! No music experience is necessary. This year camp will be held at North Charleston High School at 1087 E Montague Ave. in North Charleston. Our end of camp showcase will be at July 1st at the Charleston Music Hall.

Girls Rock Charleston’s Summer Camp is the longest running program of the Carolina Youth Action Project. CYAP is a grassroots nonprofit that uses music as a vehicle for social change and builds power among girls and transgender youth in Charleston, South Carolina. We develop feminist and anti-racist youth leaders through cultural organizing practices that blend music education, political education, and DIY media making.

Teen Leader Information

Camp will be held at North Charleston High School. A typical day at camp includes instrument classes, morning and afternoon assemblies, workshops, band practices, performances by female-identified musicians, and often a dance party!

The Teen Leader program is open to girls and transgender youth who are of high school age (14-17). We have limited space available for Teen Leaders at camp this summer, so please submit your application by the deadline on May 12. It is important that Teen Leaders attend pre-camp trainings, orientation, the full week of camp and the showcase. If you are unable to attend these dates, we ask that you consider applying again in the future to make room for other Teen Leaders who are able to fully participate.

This year, we want our Teen Leaders to have a role in hands-on organizing alongside adult organizers. The goal is for young people to emerge as facilitators and organizers of youth-centered feminist and anti-racist work. Teen Leaders will work in groups of 3-4 to set up their own workshop tracks about topics that are important to them and inform campers about real-world issues and actions affecting young people. In three Saturday meet-ups (June 3, 10, and 17 from 10am to 1pm), Teen Leaders will meet with adult organizers to plan their workshop sessions, learn about facilitation and lesson planning. It is required that you attend these three pre-camp meetings.

It is imperative to our mission and vision that we ensure our programs are accessible to and inclusive of youth and families of all backgrounds regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, community, geographic location, age, ability, and experience. In an effort to create a Teen Leader and camper population that reflects the diversity of the Charleston community, Girls Rock Charleston does not select campers and Teen Leaders strictly on a first come, first serve basis. Please understand that we cannot guarantee you a spot or notify you of acceptance until after the application deadline. We cannot guarantee spots to applicants who have already been involved in camp.

Being a Teen Leader is free!

There is no tuition fee for being a Teen Leader. However, if you and your family would like to make a donation to our scholarship fund, this will assist Girls Rock Charleston in making sure our camp is accessible to all campers who would like to attend. All donations to Girls Rock Charleston are tax-deductible.
