Danville Girls Chorus

Parent Volunteers

Guidelines

DGC is a volunteer-run organization which has been successful in the past because of the contributions and effort expended 

by parents and guardians like you!  We ask that you sign up for one volunteer job for EACH Singer you

have in DGC (i.e., if you have 2 daughters in DGC, your family needs to perform two jobs).


Please Note:  If a conflict arises and you are unable to perform your job at the last minute, you are responsible for

finding a replacement. Please ensure that your volunteer obligation is met in order to avoid a being charged a $150 fee.

A list of the volunteer jobs available to parents and guardians for the 2018/2019 season will be available soon!
