The Sound of Summer

The purpose of the project is to connect youth to the outdoors and to give people another reason to come out to our city parks and enjoy our environment.

The project is also a valuable way for youth to learn about giving back to their community and how philanthropy, volunteerism and acts of kindness can make their community a better place to be.

Sound of Summer is a free outdoor concert organized, managed and executed by volunteer youth.  The event feature local musicians and some fun activities on the side, face painting, henna, snacks and other activity based booths.

The program provides hands-on experience, leadership skills and multicultural and philanthropic awareness. It empowered youth and encourages them to continue to keep their community vibrant and dynamic.  It also inspires youth to care about nature and to take action to preserve it.




Happy Birthday Prince George
