Girls Rock Detroit

Girls Rock Detroit strives to empower young girls and women, regardless of race or socio-economic status, to challenge preconceived notions of what they can do, what they can become, and how they can engage with community. Girls Rock Detroit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes creative expression, positive self-esteem, and community awareness in young girls, ages 8-14, through a week-long summer camp focused on music education and performance. Participants receive instrument lessons, form bands, and write original songs – and then perform their songs on the stage of a real Detroit music venue.

The organization provides a safe, positive space by creating an environment filled with supportive role models and makes the experience accessible for all by offering sliding-scale tuition.

“After five days of classes, band meet-ups, and activities, our band played at the Detroit Institute of Music Education. It was an awesome experience!”
