If I have already volunteered for Girls Rock Charlotte, am I eligible for LIT?
If you are a current or former camper between 14-16 years old, you are eligible for LIT. Older teen volunteers will be called to participate in a mandatory 2020 refresh orientation. Teen campers who are 17 in the summer of 2020 will have to take a gap year before returning to volunteer at camp.
If I am not a former or current Girls Rock Charlotte camper, can I participate in LIT?
LIT is for camp alum only. We consider volunteers who are 17-18 through a pre-screening process and interview. Please visit our VOLUNTEER page to submit a volunteer application.
Our LIT committee will conduct a blind review (they will not know names) of all applications and vote on the 3 who will be accepted in 2020. Notification will be sent no later than May 1. For those not able to be accepted, feedback will be provided so that you can rock your application next year!!
