A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
"She feels proud of who she is...she'll be assertive in school settings with others. She's a leader in her social group. Her confidence levels are just massive since doing it." - parent of an OGR summer camp participant. Each year, Omaha Girls Rock holds summer camps for youth, ages 4-16. This program provides a safe, creative space for youth to discover themselves and find their voice. Through instrument instruction, band formation and practice, and workshops focused on leadership skills and social justice, youth experience a week filled with discovery and connection. In addition to our summer camp, OGR provides after school programming and year round instrument instruction for metro-area youth. Our participants are able to increase their self confidence due to their exposure to creative, music education.
Through the powerful tool of music and collaboration, our vision is to develop confidence, self reliance and original thinking. By encouraging our students to apply these principles in all aspects of their lives, they will grow into stronger, more valuable citizens.
