Events will include performances, dance, music, theatre, film, community-engaged work and more!

NEW THIS YEAR!
We've made changes to our volunteer program, based on feedback from the community and our amazing 2016 volunteer team. Changes include intergration of a youth component, more specified roles for volunteers, one HUGE celebration event at the end of the summer, and more networking opportunities.
