THE ROCK & ROUGE FOUNDATION

THE MISSION

                                                                                                               

The Rock & Rouge Foundation aims to provide a science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics path for girls, introducing them to a future of new careers.

The Rock & Rouge Festival established The Rock & Rouge Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to women’s culture, and granting small scholarships to young women pursuing paths in STEAM.

The Rock & Rouge Foundation promotes the education, empowerment, and enrichment of young girls and women from all backgrounds in Southern Louisiana, specifically the Greater New Orleans Area. The way we accomplish this is two-fold. First, we raise funds to hand out a scholarship in STEAM to young, middle school-age girls from underserved communities to put towards their high school or higher education costs. Secondly, our Foundation is a partner of the Rock & Rouge Women’s Music & Food Festival, a women’s empowerment festival in New Orleans, LA.

TOMBOY STEAM TENT

The Rock & Rouge Foundation’s Tomboy STEAM tent for young girls features partners such as ElectricGirls.org and Microsoft with workshops and games. The Tomboy Tent offers workshops fortifying  young minds throughout the day in science, technology, engineering, arts & mathematics (STEAM). Young girls ages 8-14 enjoy various activities like learning about “squishy boards” & “snap circuits”, playing games on XBoxes and a GOO table, and more. The festival’s producers welcome all genders to attend the Tomboy STEAM Tent. In the interest of breaking down all barriers, we want the kids in our communities open to a whole new world of higher education and enlightenment. This is the mission of the Rock & Rouge.
