Your Time Is the Most Valuable Gift You Can Give

Without our community of passionate volunteers, Rain City Rock Camp could not exist. We recently won BECU’s Member Volunteer of the Year Award, and we are proud of our loyal and engaged community of volunteers!

We’re always in need of volunteers with diverse perspectives and diverse skill sets. Rain City Rock Camp couldn’t be successful without all the talented, passionate volunteers who come together to make our programs special.

COVID-19 Response: For the safety and well-being of our community, all programs will be held virtually until further notice.

As we learned throughout this past year+ of successful online programs, the positive encouragement and skills of volunteers makes a huge difference in bringing the online camp experience to life.

JOIN THE RAIN CITY ROCK CAMP BOARD OF DIRECTORS!
The mission of RCRC is to empower girls, women, and gender-expansive  individuals to engage their creative potential through music, champion equity, and thrive in a community of allies and activists. As a small organization, we rely on our board to work closely with staff both to set policy and the future direction for our growth, and also to act as a “working board.” If you want to be involved with actively moving the future of RCRC forward, this is the role for you.

WE ASK OUR BOARD TO:

  • Provide governance, engage in strategic planning, contribute to fundraising efforts, and fiduciary oversight and financial management.
  • Actively contribute by preparing for, attending, and conscientiously participating in board meetings, serving on at least one committee (Fundraising, Community Engagement, Racial Equity, Finance, Board Development and Strategic Planning), and engaging with RCRC’s programming events. 
  • Understand the organization’s mission, policies, programs, and needs and serve as active advocates and ambassadors for the organization and fully engage in identifying and securing the financial resources and partnerships necessary for RCRC to advance its mission.
  • We’re particularly looking for board members who represent traditionally marginalized identities such as black, indigenous and people of color [BIPOC], trans folks, nonbinary folks, and folks with disabilities as well as parents of RCRC campers. Previous experience with finance, marketing, racial equity and inclusion is a plus.

JOIN THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE!

Calling all volunteers, camp alumni, parents, and RCRC supporters! The Rain City Rock Camp Board of Directors is looking to expand volunteer leadership by developing a Community Engagement Committee.

The Community Engagement Committee consists of Board, staff, and community members who aim to provide relationship building, advocacy, and resource-sharing opportunities with youth, adults, and music groups in the Seattle and South Sound area. The committee meets monthly and conducts a variety of activities relevant to our communities – with the aim to introduce new outreach tools and bring back community favorites like ARC Lotto Bands.

Committee members serve one-year terms and are asked to commit to 20-30 service hours, including meetings. People of all experiences are welcome and encouraged to apply. Skill sets in community outreach and communications, racial & gender equity, youth development, music industry, and event planning are especially needed.

Year-round Volunteering

RCRC year-round volunteer positions are opportunities for people seeking academic credit, job training, and volunteer experience. These volunteers serve in research, gear assistance, procurement, outreach and administrative capacities.
Please note that the RCRC office is currently closed to all but essential staff, so any volunteer opportunities will remain remote.
