Volunteer

Y'all Rock Carbondale is a volunteer- staffed program for girls, trans, and gnc youth to rock out. Volunteer organizers plan year round, serve on at least one committee, and are asked to make a commitment as staff (up to full-time) during our summer camp session (held mid-summer).

 

Volunteer positions are open to cis gendered and trans women, as well as gender non-conforming individuals. Volunteers must be mature, responsible adults, pass a basic background check, and be committed to communicating and growing together.

 

Every session of camp includes an expectation to commit to: volunteer orientation, at least 50% camp-week participation, setting up camp, breaking down camp, and a post-camp rendezvous. Camp-week commitments as well as yearlong organizing commitments are realized on a case-by-case basis depending on volunteer availability and position applied for.
