Needed: Volunteer Food Coordinator(s)

Fuel the movement! Girls Rock! DC is seeking one to two volunteer food coordinators to solicit and organize food and food donations prior to our 2 weeks of camp in July, and to run food operations during the 2 weeks of camp. This is an extremely important volunteer position, without which camp cannot happen. Camp is July 7-19.

About the volunteer job: Roles prior to camp include soliciting donations from businesses and from individuals willing to provide meals. It will also be helpful if you were able to attend a couple of leadership meeting prior to camp. During camp week you will organize helpers in assembling and distributing camper lunches, organizing camper snacks, and putting out donated food and coffee for the volunteers.There will be a need for a small amount of organizational and record keeping work to wrap up the camp season.

Who should apply: This position is open to all genders. While it is helpful to have been at camp before, it is not at all necessary. This is a great way for a non-musician to get involved, as well as an ideal position for those who prefer not to work directly with children. A car is a plus but one may also be available for borrowing if needed.

Time commitment: Commitment is from now through camp (July 7-19) and its breakdown in July. Between now and July’s camp, you can expect to spend about an hour per week prepping for camp meals and lining up donations. The 2-3 days before camp will involve several hours of buying supplies and setting up your kitchen kingdom for the 2 weeks. At least one coordinator needs to be on site at all times during camp weeks (9-5). Camp breakdown occurs on July 20, but you may want to spent a couple of hours after that time organizing your records and supplies. After that, year-round involvement is possible.There is the option for joining the leadership team if you’re interested.

Resources for you: You have at your disposal excellent and thorough files from the previous coordinator, who was extremely organized. The school may also provide some food, and some supplies remain from last year. You’ll be given a budget based on past spending and a credit card to use at Costco etc. A leadership team member with previous food experience will partner with you and be available to answer any questions.

Dear GR!DC Family,

Last year our volunteer community helped Girls Rock! DC have our most awesome camp yet! It was an amazing week: on Monday we welcomed 62 campers into the Hall of Sisterhood, and by the end of the week, 11 great new bands played an incredible show in front of hundreds of excited fans at DC’s 9:30 Club. We can only put on this awesome programming because of the support from our volunteers like you.

Now, Girls Rock! DC is thrilled to announce the launch of our summer 2014 Rock Camp applications! We will have some new hybrid roles to ensure effective staffing at camp and hope you’ll join us as you’re able-for a workshop, the week, or both weeks!

This year for the first time ever, we will be holding TWO sessions of camp, divided by age:

Session 1 (ages 8-12): Monday, July 7th – Saturday, July 12th
Session 2: (ages 13-18): Monday, July 14th – Saturday, July 19th

Volunteer applications for both sessions are due with a priority date of Thursday, May 1st. This date will allow us to ensure we are able to hold interviews and follow-up conversations far in advance of camp. We will accept applications on a rolling basis afterMay 1st. You can also access our online Volunteer Portal directly via this link:
