Community Impact Showcase


May 2, 2024

At ConnexionWorks, we are overjoyed to announce our participation in this year's Greater Saint John (GSJ) Community Foundation Impact Showcase! The highlight of this event, held on May 2, 2024, has been receiving the prestigious Community Impact Grant, a milestone that marks a significant step forward in our mission to empower and uplift future youth entrepreneurs within our community.

A Pivotal Moment for ConnexionWorks

Receiving the Community Impact Grant is not merely a financial boost for us; it represents a powerful endorsement of our vision and efforts. This grant affirms the critical importance of our mission to support young entrepreneurs aged 15 to 29 through our KPI Program and Youth Entrepreneurship Micro Grant. It acknowledges the transformative potential of fostering innovation and entrepreneurial spirit in the next generation.

Empowering Youth Entrepreneurs

The grant has allowed us to expand our resources and enhance the support we provide to budding entrepreneurs. Our KPI Program is designed to equip young individuals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to succeed in the business world. In addition, we are excited to offer the Youth Entrepreneurship Micro Grant, which allows us to assist young entrepreneurs with up to $5000.00 in financial support to grow thier businesses in our community. With this opportunity, we can reach more young people, offer more comprehensive training, and provide better access to vital resources.

A Shared Vision for Community Growth

Our work aligns with the broader vision of the Greater Saint John Community Foundation, which seeks to foster innovation, growth, and positive change within our community. The recognition from the GSJ Community Foundation is a testament to the shared belief in the power of community-driven initiatives. We are incredibly grateful for their support and the validation it provides.

Thank You to the GSJ Community Foundation

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the GSJ Community Foundation for acknowledging the significance of our work. Their support underscores the importance of initiatives like ours in driving community growth and empowerment. Being part of this network motivates us to continue our efforts with renewed vigor and commitment.

This grant is just the beginning. We are excited about the future and the many opportunities that lie ahead. We look forward to many more years of collaboration with the GSJ Community Foundation and other community partners. Together, we can continue to drive positive change and create a brighter future for young entrepreneurs in our community.

Thank you for being part of our story and our community. Here's to many more milestones and moments of impact! 🌱💪
