The case for volunteering

Darin White is not only a top-notch photographer, blogger and Grand Porch Party volunteer: He is also a passionate advocate for active citizenry. When he’s not attending or promoting local arts and community efforts, he is thinking of new ways to engage people of all ages in the vibrant scene that is Waterloo Region.

He came to visit the GPP volunteer sign-up night last Thursday, and went home to post this brilliant take on how people can, in his words, “shift from consumer to contributor”.

And if you get inspired, you can still sign up for a 60- or 90-minute volunteer shift to help us make the day you love so much. Check out all the details here.

About grandporchparty

The Grand Porch Party is an annual neighbourhood music event where we take over the porches, and then the streets, for some fab early-summer music. First launched in 2011.
