Girls Rock! Sydney Mentor Application Summer 2019
Girls Rock! Australia aims to build confidence and self-esteem in female, trans and gender-diverse youth and adults by amplifying their voices through music education and performance.

The Girls Rock! Sydney Camp for female, trans and gender-diverse youth aged 10-17 years Is returning on 14th – 19th January 2019 at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville. We are currently seeking mentors to fill various roles within the camp. The mentors we require are: instrument instructors to teach the campers skills in guitar, drums, bass guitar, vocals, and electronic music; and band coaches and band managers to help the campers form a band and write songs together.

Please note that mentors must be 18+ years old and all mentor positions will be paid an honorarium (approx. $250 for the week, per role taken). There will be mandatory online pre-camp training materials (approx. 3 hours) as well as a compulsory orientation on 13th January 2019.

Spots are limited, however, there will be many other exciting opportunities in the future.
