HELP US ACHIEVE OUR GOAL TO HIRE A FULL-TIME COORDINATOR FOR RCFG*!
The RCFG* Coordinator will be responsible for the overarching logistical and administrative tasks necessary for achieving RCFG*’s mission and mandate. Their job will include organizing and overseeing the summer camp, developing and running year-round programming for youth, and obtaining funds to ensure the organization can flourish. The Coordinator will be required to work closely with the RCFG* Board and to attend Board meetings twice a month. RCFG* welcomes candidates who identify as women/girls, genderqueer/gender non-conforming, who are strongly self-motivated, task-oriented, and who feel comfortable taking initiative and working autonomously.

RCFG* is made possible by the hard work of many dedicated volunteers. These dedicated individuals work year-round to make camp a fun and engaging experience. If you have the energy, drive and enthusiasm to devote to Rock Camp for Girls Montreal, please consider getting involved with one of our committees. We need people with a wide range of skills for a variety of tasks. While experience isn’t a requirement, previous knowledge is definitely an asset. We’re looking for individuals who are strongly self-motivated and task-oriented, and who can make a commitment to setting goals and seeing them through.
The Outreach Committee is responsible for creating and fostering relationships with past, current and future campers and volunteers. The committee also works to expand Rock Camp’s programs to new communities within Montreal. The committee does this through holding workshops and info sessions in schools and at events to talk about RCFG*’s programming, postering and flyering, and working with other community organizations. This committee is also responsible for writing press releases and helping represent Rock Camp for Girls in the media.
This committee is focused on managing fundraisers for the organization. A big part of the job of the members of this committee is writing grant applications. They are also in charge of seeking private donations, coordinating donor drives, and helping manage fundraising events. The Fundraising and Events committee also maintains current partnerships and seeks out new partnerships with like-minded community organizations, as well as making connections with artists and community event organizers for possible fundraising events partnerships. Written French, translation, and grant writing skills are an asset, but not a requirement.
The Merch Committee manages the Rock Camp merchandise sold at events and online in our Etsy shop (t-shirts, temporary tattoos, pins, etc.). They design and order merch, send volunteers to events to sell merch, and mail out online orders.
The accessibility committee addresses accessibility issues within the organization. This includes, but isn’t limited to, working towards making the camp, choir, events, and organization’s communications more accessible in terms of language, physical space, application procedures, and much more.
The translation committee is one of the most hard-working committees, as RCFG* is a bilingual organization. Most of our texts are written originally in English and need to be translated to French, as we consider language an important accessibility factor. From Facebook posts to internal documents and grant proposals, every RCFG* document needs to be made available in both English and French. We are always looking for non-professional translators for our more informal texts and also for professional translators who can guarantee that documents such as grant proposals, which usually take us weeks of work to write, will be properly translated respecting the right terminology and the structure of the text.
CAMPER COMMITTEE: CAMPERS@GIRLSROCKMONTREAL.COM
The Camper Committee welcomes campers and former campers to help us build the RCFG* they dream of. Your input, participation and engagement is super important for us! Get in touch for more information in how to get involved.
A NOTE ON OUR GENDER POLICY:
RCFG* welcomes individuals who identify as women/girls, genderqueer/gender non-conforming to apply for leadership positions at camp, and individuals who identify as men are welcome to apply for non-leadership positions. Non-leadership roles are open to any individual regardless of gender identity. We are committed to maintaining an atmosphere of diversity, inclusion, and respect for all individuals throughout camp. For more information, please see the section on volunteer positions.
We acknowledge that gender is a very complex and important issue. RCFG* is always open to comments and/or further discussion surrounding this topic. Contact us and we can talk about it!
