FILM program & mission

At We Rock Charlotte, youth learn much more than how to rock!

Our film curriculum teaches these diverse individuals to learn, create, and collaborate through creative exploration. We provide lessons, workshops, and activities that build allyship and empower youth to tell their stories.

This community is a safe space for campers to explore and affirm their identities, using positive and inclusive language across all genders, races, ethnicities, socio-economic levels, immigration statuses, abilities (physical, cognitive and mental), and more.

By uniting film education with social justice programs, We Rock Charlotte teaches youth to stand up for themselves and each other as artists, activists, and allies. 

We invite all girls and gender diverse individuals to make disruptive change and rock with us!
