Every Kid in our Communities to Honour “Asset Builders”

LEEDS AND GRENVILLE—The Every Kid in our Communities (EKIOC) Coalition is looking for nominations of organizations, businesses, and individuals who make a difference in the lives of children and youth in Leeds and Grenville- in other words they build assets! These “asset builders” will be recognized at a ceremony on Sunday, June 2, 2024, at the Brockville YMCA.

The Every Kid Coalition is looking to identify organizations, businesses, and individuals who:

  • Show interest and invest time in children and youth
  • Inspire children and youth
  • Provide support to children and youth
  • Give children and youth a voice
  • Introduce children and youth to new ideas and experiences
  • Advocate for children and youth

Tawnya Boileau, Chair of EKIOC Developmental Assets Work Group explains: “We are so fortunate to live in a community where many organizations and individuals influence the lives of young people in a positive way. Our coalition wants to pay tribute to these “asset builders””.

The deadline for nominations is May 1, 2024. Submission forms are available online at the EKIOC website: www.everykid.on.ca .
