GRNC's After School is a 10-week music and empowerment program for girls, trans, and gender non-conforming kids available in two sessions throughout the academic year: Winter/Spring (Jan-Mar) and Fall (Sep-Nov). The program takes place one afternoon per week and is a more intimate version of our Summer Rock Camp. Campers form bands, learn to play instruments of their choice, and write original music with their peers and mentors.

After school attendees have the opportunity to attend workshops to strengthen their confidence, creative expression, and collaboration. Designed as more of a mentoring and songwriting program, campers will focus on writing songs together and discussing aspects of creative process (lyrics, melody, structure, subject matter, etc). There will be workshops exploring in-depth topics like recording, image and brand development/promotion, and merchandise.

No musical background or instruments necessary to participate in GRNC After School!
