Girls on the Mic Classes for Girls

  

Girls on the Mic cultivates the next generation of women recording artists and engineers by providing girls, ages 8-18, with women mentors and sound recording technology to facilitate small-scale recording projects that mirror professional activities. WAM works with Bay Area Middle Schools and community organizations to bring 6-18 weeks of music and technology-based curriculum to over 650 girls a year.

 

WAM currently partners with Thomas Edison Charter Academy, Citizens Schools (United for Success - Oakland, Cesar Chavez Academy - East Palo Alto, Lionel Wilson Prep. Academy-Oakland), Buena Vista Horace Mann Middle School, Everett Middle School - Beacon Program, Aim High, Streetside Stories/Samoan Community Development Center, Girls, Inc, Tech Bridge and a rapidly growing list of new partners. We use a specific skill and learning outcomes model and work to integrate our training with the fundamental skills being taught at each partnering school or organization for maximum educational achievement.

 

Girls on the Mic classes are held at the WAM facility or at the partnering organization's facility year round and are FREE to participants. Classes are scheduled directly with partnering schools or organizations.

 

WAM also offers Girls on the Mic classes at most Bay Area "Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics™" conferences

 

Please contact us if your school or organization is interested in partnering with WAM.

    WAM is excited to begin a partnership with the Cal-safe (California School Age Families Education) program in Oakland this summer.  Cal-Safe is a program that serves expectant and parenting students aged 13 to 18 who have not completed high school and who live within the Oakland school district.

    The program's overall goals are to enable motivated students to complete their high school education, to learn to provide a safe and caring environment for their young children, to secure gainful employment, and ultimately become fully self-reliant.
