WAM’s Girls on the Mic (GOTM) program is a groundbreaking after-school training and mentoring program serving San Francisco Bay Area girls and gender-expansive youth ages 11-18 from under-resourced communities. We offer free creative technology and digital media production training in a variety of topics. 

When: Once a week for 1-2 hours with a group of your students for 8-15 weeks

How: We travel to you with our mobile equipment or we can offer a program utilizing our own spaces.

Girls on the Mic uses music and media to connect middle and high school students every year to STEAM studies, primarily in the audio and media production sectors. You don’t have to identify as a girl to participate — all identities are welcome! 

That said, we ask all students interested to show up open to learning and understanding why we hold this particular affinity space.
