Girls Rock! Chicago is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building socially just community with girls, transgender youth, and gender non-conforming youth by developing leadership, fostering self-esteem, and encouraging creative expression through music. Through our music education programs for girls and transgender & gender non-conforming (TGNC) youth ages 8 to 16, we are committed to educating girls and TGNC youth about the musical, technical, and creative aspects involved in musicianship because we believe that they are rarely encouraged to explore self-expressive creative outlets and are less likely to be given access to musical and technical instruction or equipment. We believe that music can be a crucial tool in allowing young women and TGNC youth to respond to preconceived notions of what they can do and what they can become.
