About Let Them Be Kids

The Compass - - OPINION -

Let Them Be Kids is an all vol­un­teer or­ga­ni­za­tion and is made up of busi­ness lead­ers, re­cre­ation prac­ti­tion­ers, as well as ex­perts from var­i­ous fields and most im­por­tantly a lot of reg­u­lar Moms and Dads; who are all ded­i­cated to mak­ing to­mor­row a lit­tle bit bet­ter than it was yes­ter­day for to­day’s gen­er­a­tion as well as the ones to come.

LTBK was started over a decade ago by Ian and Gina Hill in an at­tempt to help the home­less chil­dren of their own lo­cal com­mu­nity. The con­cept was that if adults did their jobs in help­ing to build strong fam­i­lies, neigh­bor­hoods and com­mu­ni­ties then the kids could just be kids, hence the name Let Them Be Kids.

The Let Them Be Kids Pro­gram was launched across Canada in 2006 when LTBK iden­ti­fied a deep need across the coun­try; groups, large and small, needed as­sis­tance in se­cur­ing of funds for the build­ing of play struc­tures for chil­dren who may not have the avail­abil­ity of safe, se­cure places to play.

To­day, Let Them Be Kids is an out­comes based im­pact fo­cused or­ga­ni­za­tion that has clearly de­fined de­sired out­comes with clearly out­lined im­pacts from those out­comes.

These out­comes are achieved through our com­mu­nity projects and pro­grams; in­clud­ing the Kool-aid Smiles and Help­ing Hands awards.
