Help fund the first ever session of GR!DSM...

GR!DSM is a day camp for girls with one two-week summer session. The purpose of this program is to create an opportunity for girls to collaborate creatively in an environment of mutual respect and positive self-expression. GR!DSM also aims to build self-esteem through music creation and performance. GR!DSM will provide workshops and technical training, create leadership opportunities, cultivate a supportive community of peers and mentors, and encourage social change and the development of life skills through music performance and composition. Additionally, this program will create a culture of collaboration between mentors, campers, and the broader community.

 The camp will serve girls age 10 to 16 years old. Girls 17 - 18 who are still enrolled in high school can sign up for the Counselors in Training program. GR!DSM offers girls an opportunity to feel creative and empowered. Most importantly, Girls Rock!DSM is an idea that will foster social change. In a culture where 25% of young American women would rather win America’s Next Top Model than the Nobel Peace Prize, and 23% would rather lose their ability to read than their figures, it is more imperative than ever to create and support gender specific programming that aims to provide opportunities for girls and young women to feel empowered and honored for their intellectual and creative abilities. GR!DSM seeks to create that environment through its programming. 

Your support is vital to this program. Our fundraising goal is $5000. Your donations will help GR!DSM provide instruments, lunches, and supplies for campers. Most importantly, your donations will enable girls with financial barriers, the opportunity to attend camp! You can make this awesome program happen...whether $5 or $500, your contribution will help girls participate in an educational, empowering, and FUN program! 

We are sincerely grateful for your support!
