Why should I help?

Girls+ Rock Ottawa is a grassroots organization run by volunteers. As the coordination and the daily functioning of the organization require a lot of time, effort and resources, we are always looking for more help. We are also looking to expand our year-round activities and will need an arsenal of excited volunteers available to help.

During Camp weekend, volunteers provide the girls with a fun and pressure-free space where they can tap into their creative potential and explore new skills. In return, volunteers are rewarded with the satisfaction of knowing they are empowering young women. If you consider music to be an important part of your life, please consider volunteering your time or making a donation to Girls+ Rock Ottawa.

What can I do to help?

There are many ways you can help. During the event weekend, Girls+ Rock Ottawa not only needs teachers to work with the girls but we also need general volunteers to help make sure the weekend runs smoothly with things like setting up the different venues, food, leading non-musical activities during breaks, etc. We also need help with our fundraising events which can involve anything from sitting at info tables at events, to putting on shows. You don't need to be a musician to help!
