Rock Camp for Girls Montreal Is Hiring a Full-Time Coordinator!
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Rock Camp for Girls Montreal (RCGM) is a week-long summer camp where campers discover and express their talents, and become leaders in creating their own cultural production through music. Musicians and community members support campers through instrument instruction, tech tutorials, band practice and skill-building workshops. At the week’s end, campers get the chance to show off their talents to friends, family, and community members at the Showcase Concert.
RCGM fosters the promotion of self-esteem, skill-building and critical thinking skills for girls and gender non-conforming youth through collaborative music composition and performance. RCGM supplements the music component with workshops based on feminist and anti-oppression frameworks that provide campers with a space for critical examination and personal empowerment.
The goal is for girls to rock in all aspects of life!
This year, RCGM aims to launch a sustainable, year-round project that will foster community building, as well as provide mentorship and leadership opportunities for youth. The dream is for RCGM to grow into a sustainable long-term network of campers, staff, community members and stakeholders interested in the empowerment and musical leadership of girls and gender non-conforming youth in and around the Montreal area. The role of the full-time coordinator has been created to help us achieve that dream.
ABOUT THE JOB POSITION
The RCGM Coordinator will be responsible for the overarching logistical and administrative tasks necessary for launching the year-round space. Initial priorities will include finding and moving into a permanent year-round space, as well as developing year-round programming for youth. The year-round RCGM space is a brand-new project; the Coordinator will therefore have to be imaginative and flexible in organizing and implementing the necessary tasks for building the project from the ground up. The Coordinator will be required to work closely with the RCGM Board and to attend Board meetings twice a month. RCGM 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.
