November News: Updates from our Youth Board

December 9, 2021

KCT kids and leaders choosing outfits for dolls

We are very thankful for our KCT Kids coming to our November Events!

Our KCT Kids really enjoyed our November Events! We had fun at our Eastside Baby Corner Doll Cleaning Event, where we cleaned the dolls, as well as styled their hair, dressed them up in cute outfits, and chose some accessories for them! We did some exciting arts and crafts as we made table centerpieces with nature and some cards for the Giving Hope Project!

A Note from Deb

Here at Kids Coming Together we are so thankful for the incredible families we have met through all the events we have held this year. We wanted to let you know that there will be no KCT Events in December. But don’t forget about us because we aren’t going anywhere!

We are taking the month of December to plan Events that will work for all of us given the colder weather and early dusk of the next couple months. Our newly structured Youth Board is working hard on new ideas, new partnerships, and new technology to make 2022 our best year yet! If you have any ideas please don’t hesitate to reach out to our VP, Abby Wells at . We are always looking for new opportunities and Abby and the rest of the Youth Board Executive will also be sending out a survey in December to find out how KCT can work best for you during the colder months.

We can’t wait to see you all again in January!

Below are messages from each team on our Youth Board:

Executive Team:

For past the couple months, the KCT Youth Board has been partnering with the Renaissance 8th grade leadership team. The RAVENS are a group of enthusiastic middle schoolers looking for leadership opportunities, and our leaders have been so excited to work with them! Each RAVEN will shadow an older KCT leader at one of our events to experience hands-on leadership and have a chance to witness the logistics of how the community service events are run. We are so excited to see their growth throughout this school year!

Web Team:

We are excited to announce a total redesign of the KCT website launching 2022! Our website will still be accessible throughout the process. Our goal is to make it more user-friendly, with a new registration process and streamlined navigation. We will also be introducing blog posts, with all the information in our monthly newsletter readily available to access anytime! Below is a sneak peek of what’s to come; if you have any questions or feedback for our current website, please contact Can’t wait to see you all back in 2022!

Marketing Team:

Hi! Over the past few months, we have switched the marketing, social media, and newsletter responsibilities over to new Youth Board members. We have developed a marketing style that we plan on consistently using going forward. Please let us know if you have any feedback or if there is anything else you want to see from our social media (Instagram and Facebook) or our newsletter! Have a happy new year!

Events Team:

Hey KCT kids, it’s been a crazy, but fun, couple of months. We can’t wait to see you guys at future events! Our Event Team is working to come up with new ideas for events and we would love to have your thoughts on what we should do. Let us know what your favorite events have been and what you’d like to see in the future. Happy Holidays!
