Teacher Application FAQ

If I have taught at the camps for several years, do I still need to fill out an application?
Yes! It helps us stay organized!

Do I need to fill out separate applications for WRRR & GRRR if I want to teach at both camps?
Yes! It helps us stay organized! 

If I am only available to do one camp session/week, should I still apply?
Yes! We love getting more folks involved and we understand that folks have busy schedules. Go ahead and apply!

If I’m applying for multiple weeks to teach at GRRR, do I get to work for all of them?
It depends on the needs we have for each camp as some camps need way more teachers than others. We often have teachers who are new to our programs work two weeks to get a feel for the program without getting overwhelmed! 

Can I still teach at a camp if I’m going to be gone one or more days? Can I teach for half days?
Unfortunately, we need folks to commit to the whole camp week (weekend for WRRR) for the whole day. This helps the program run more smoothly.

Will I get paid for teaching at a camp?
Yes! All of our teaching artists and program contractors receive payment for their time at camp. The amount can fluctuate year to year depending on the funding we receive, but it is posted under the job description.

Can I request to get paid more for teaching at camp?
She Rock She Rock works to be as accessible to our teachers, participants and staff as possible. We understand that pay can be a barrier for teaching artists. If you need to be paid more for the camp week, please talk to Sam & Jenny during your interview as a new teacher or after applying as a returning teacher. We will work with you to figure out a solution that works for you and within the organization’s resources! Higher priority will be given to folks who are trans, nonbinary, people of color, or parents, as these folks have typically had less access to be teachers at our programs. 

Can I donate a portion of my pay back to She Rock She Rock?
Absolutely! Talk to Sam about this!

I don’t have music experience, how can I be involved?
If you have experience working with youth in a support role (educator, psychologist, social worker, teacher, etc), check out our Power Coach Position for GRRR. If not, we always need volunteers to help us load tons of equipment for the camps, doing various tasks during camps, running the door at showcases, and selling merchandise at the showcases. Please e-mail sam@sherocksherock.com if you are interested!

I don’t identify as female, trans, or nonbinary but I still want to be involved. How can I do this?
Non-leadership roles (such as gear hauling, ticket taking, etc) are open to anyone passionate about our cause. Please e-mail sam@sherocksherock.com if you are interested.
