WHO WE ARE:
Omaha Girls Rock (OGR) is a nonprofit that provides Omaha’s female-identifying youth with music-based Summer Camp and Afterschool programming… but we’re about so much more than just music.
WHY WE MATTER:
Our curriculum is designed to empower young women through arts education. We help girls to develop a sense of self-efficacy as they work through the creative process. A growing body of research shows that girls in particular benefit from empowerment through music.
WHO WE SERVE:
We serve young women in the Omaha area. Among our participants, an array of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds are represented. Over 50% of our campers receive full or partial scholarships in order for us to reach any and all populations with our message. Our two summer camps can accommodate approximately 100 campers, while our after school programs will ultimately have the capacity to reach even more Omaha middle schoolers as they continue to evolve and grow.
