Mentor at Girls Rock! Sydney

DISPOSSESSED GIRLS ROCK CAMP1.jpg

Applications for mentoring at Girls Rock! Sydney are open!

The second Girls Rock! Sydney Camp for female, trans and gender-diverse youth aged 10-17 years will be held on 14 – 19th January 2019 at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville. Read about the camp program here.

At Girls Rock! Sydney we aim to champion diversity, so we encourage those of all backgrounds to apply, particularly those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, the LGBTQIA community, and those with differing abilities.

We are currently seeking mentors to fill various roles within the camp. The mentors we require are:

Instrument Instructors: Experienced musicians or educators for guitar, drums, vocals, bass guitar, or electronic music to teach campers their chosen instrument. Instrument Instructors will guide campers through their learning experience and encourage them throughout camp.

Band Coaches: Strong knowledge of gear and setup for live performances and experience playing music. Each Band Coach will be supported by a Band Manager, and will act as a supportive guide for campers in their allocated band with songwriting and performance. Band Coaches will also attend workshops with their allocated band.

Band Managers: Interest in music or experience as a musician. Each Band Manager will be supported by a Band Coach, and will act as an encouraging and positive force on campers by assisting their allocated band with teamwork, songwriting and performance. Band Managers will also attend workshops with their allocated band.

Instrument Instructors are welcome to also apply for a Band Coach or Manager role.

If you are interested in joining us for Girls Rock! Sydney Camp Summer 2019, please click here to fill in the application form.

Applications for mentors close 15th November 2018, and you will be notified of your outcome in late November-early December.

If you are unsure about anything, or have any questions about camp or mentor roles, please feel free to email us at hello@girlsrocksydney.org.

 

Please note that mentors must be 18+ years old and all mentor positions will be paid an honorarium. Mentors will also be required to attend a mandatory staff orientation day on Sunday 13th January 2019. Spots are limited, however, there will be many other exciting opportunities in the future!

In the meantime, stay connected with us through our Facebook or Instagram - we have a few fundraiser shows coming up and would love to see you there!
