Here We Go!! Our Girls Rock!Des Moines March Toward Revolution Campaign is off and rocking! 100% of funds raised during this campaign support our Summer Rock Camps & Scholarship Program!
At Girls Rock!Des Moines we lift up the unique voices of girls and gender-expansive folx through creative expression. We believe each of our rockers should have a chance to celebrate their one-of-a-kind identity, their own inner strength and creativity and connect to the world around them through music education, innovative programming and performance. We encourage them to explore their inner rocker, develop creative habits, and discover what inspires them. At GR!DSM, every rocker gets to share their unique voice with the world - because every voice deserves to be heard.
Founded in 2013, GR!DSM modeled its Summer Rock Camp after the original Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls. We are entering our eighth summer cycle, and it is our mission to cover all material costs, musical gear and educational tools that are needed by our rockers to be successful within our program. Also, up to now, we have never turned away a rocker due to financial struggles. Thanks to your individual donations we are able to raise funds throughout the year to cover all costs needed by our rocker families.
Please join with us in supporting our efforts to making Girls Rock!Des Moines accessible to all our communities' youth.
