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.
On March 6th, 1915 the City of Prince George was incorporated. To celebrate the City 100th birthday, the YiP Committee made a giant birthday card which citizens had signed during the Sound of Summer Concert. The card was then presented to City Council.
