The Guelph Youth Music Centre also received special tribute by the judges of the 1999 National Communities in Bloom competition at which the city of Guelph took First Place. Specifically, the extraordinary amount of volunteer effort in the construction of the facility was noted. In fact, it is estimated that over 20,000 hours was contributed by more than 100 volunteers towards the completion of this project. Currently 200 volunteers contribute over 7,000 hours annually in assisting with the operations and programming of the facility.
The Centre is used by over 1,000 children and their families on a weekly basis and directly benefits 4,000 additional area residents annually through community concerts.
