Girls Rock Vermont is a music education program dedicated to building self-esteem and encouraging self-expression. With Girls Rock Camp and Ladies Rock Camp, their programs provide girls and women the opportunity to participate in an environment that fosters leadership, encourages social change and cultivates a supportive community of female peers and mentors.
In June the Central Support CAT made a $1,000 grant to Girls Rock Vermont (GRVT). GRVT is a volunteer-based non-profit music organization dedicated to empowering girls and young women in Vermont through music education and activities fostering self-respect, leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. Their signature program, a one-week summer day camp, targets girls’ musical development through lessons on the instrument of their choice, self-esteem enhancement, creation of original music, friendship and community building, and nurturing individual talents within a cooperative atmosphere by working in bands and writing original songs.
