As a grassroots community organization, Girls+ Rock Ottawa, has for over 10 years provided music-based programming to girls in Ottawa, fostering a sense of empowerment, acceptance and community. In their flagship camp for girls 13-17, participants learn an instrument, join a band, and showcase their achievements at a live performance all in 3 days.
In 2016, Tiffanie Tri of Girls+ Rock Ottawa joined the Impact Hub Ottawa community for our 5th Impact Academy Cohort. The to-date volunteer based organization learned new skills and tools to help them scale their initiative and build new business models for sustainability. They expanded their programming to include re-occuring jam sessions and gig planning workshops and in June 2017 launched their first Girls Rock for Women+ for women 19+. All proceeds from the new program help support accessibility to their flagship camp for young girls.
