BLACK GIRLS ROCK! is an organization that takes an active role in being a part of the solution to the crisis facing young women of color.  For the past four years, we have enjoyed the opportunity to enrich the lives of girls aged 12 to 17 years old through mentorship, arts education, cultural exploration and public service. At BLACK GIRLS ROCK!, young women are offered access to enrichment programs and opportunities that place special emphasis on personal development through the arts and cooperative learning. We offer innovative arts programs and activities at no cost to the girls we serve, and depend on the generosity of our donors and the financial success of our fund raising events to support our growth.
