Every Kid in our Communities to Honour “Asset Builders”

March 28, 2023

The Every Kid in our Communities (EKIOC) Coalition is looking for nominations of organizations, businesses, and individuals who made a difference in the lives of children and youth in Leeds and Grenville, particularly over the last 3 difficult pandemic years- in other words they built assets! These “asset builders” will be recognized at a ceremony on Sunday June 4, 2023, at the YMCA of Brockville and Area. 

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

Karynn von Cramon, Coordinator of EKIOC explains: “We know that the COVID-19 pandemic caused significant disruption to our children and youth. We also know, though, that there were many everyday heroes who helped children learn, play, and connect. We want to recognize them.”

The deadline for nominations is May 3, 2023. Forms are available online at the EKIOC website:
