WHO WE ARE
She Rock She Rock (SR2) is a Minnesota based nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering girls, women, trans and nonbinary folks through the art of music. We provide an inclusive environment that values collaboration and diversity, develops leadership skills and fosters self-confidence. Through our music education programs and events, we believe that creative expression can evoke social change, challenge gender stereotypes and encourage a climate of support within our community.

Get involved with She Rock She Rock and help actualize our mission by becoming a strong, positive mentor for our participants!

We are continually working to cultivate a supportive community of peers and positive mentors that empower our participants.  It is not necessarily our goal to make musical virtuosos out of our camp participants. Rather, it is to create a supportive, inclusive environment so that campers can feel comfortable when taking musical and creative risks they might not be able to do in another setting. We work within a social justice lens and seek folks who are willing to teach, learn and grow within our Points of Unity framework.

Currently, we are seeking women, trans, and nonbinary folks to be coaches and mentors at our 2020 camp sessions. We are looking for musicians, counselors, educators, volunteers and more to help with our camp sessions. In order to best serve our campers, we want to ensure that our teachers and coaches reflect their multitude of identities. We believe that camp is strongest when our campers can see themselves in their mentors. Because of this, folks who identify as any of the following are strongly encouraged to apply: people of color, indigenous, trans, nonbinary, genderqueer and/or folks with disabilities.

We often find that folks don't think they are "good enough" or "qualified enough" to be teachers or coaches at camp. It is in our mission to also empower our teachers and staff and give learning opportunities for folks who want to become teachers or coaches. We encourage you take risks, throw your imposter's syndrome in the trash and apply today!
