The Carolina Youth Action Project (CYAP) invites the community to join them at the Charleston Music Hall on Saturday, July 28th for Rock Camp Charleston’s 8th annual Camp Showcase event! This year’s lineup includes both new and returning campers forming 10 bands performing original music.
During this one-week summer camp program, youth form bands, take instrument instruction, and participate in workshops that use music and art to explore social issues affecting campers and their communities. In addition, bands work together to write original music. At the end-of-camp Showcase, these camper bands stand in front of an audience of family, friends, and Charleston community members to perform their original songs live.
This summer CYAP is launching the Youth Leader Institute (YLI) which aims to equip girls, trans youth, and gender nonconforming youth with the skills, support, and critical analysis necessary to lead a movement for radical and lasting change in South Carolina. Youth leaders will receive a crash course in community organizing that centers self-reflection, political education, facilitation, research, base building, and communications. YLI folks will also be developing their leadership by coordinating all rock camp assemblies, planning workshops, and building relationships with adult co-mentors to work towards a specific goal by the end of the institute. YLI will culminate with the launching of a long-term youth-led campaign at the camp showcase; community members will be will have the chance to become involved in campaign work starting in the fall!
