We know the important impact that young people can have on the future of this city, which is why we're hosting City Jam to encourage more Edmontonians, especially between ages 18–40, to get involved and experience how rewarding it can be to give back!
NextGen City Jam is a packed night of live music that encourages Edmontonians to volunteer in YEG! The concept is simple: volunteer a minimum of 10 hours, sign up to get your name on the guest list to attend a fantastic event! Whether you're volunteering for the first time, or you're a long-time volunteer, City Jam is our way to say thanks for all that you're doing to shape Edmonton.
Thanks again to everyone who attended last year's event! We had the best time with you, and together we contributed 13,452 hours to local volunteer programs. Check out a few familiar faces in our City Jam video and take a minute to reflect on all that we're doing together to build Edmonton into the city we want it to be.
We're happy to have Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (ECVO) and Volunteer Alberta as partners for City Jam 2018!
