Kiwanis and its youth-oriented Service
in more than 70 countries and geographic areas.
Kiwanians are volunteers changing
the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members
help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and
care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise
funds for pediatric research, and much more. No problem is too big or too
small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot
accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream,
and succeed, great things happen!
As Kiwanis clubs and members, we see it everyday!
What We Do?
This truly is an exciting time to be a part of Kiwanis.
Clubs are increasing their service to children and communities worldwide and
reporting thousands of success stories.
They are building parks, stocking school libraries, providing scholarships, recognizing
elementary school students through Kiwanis' Terrific Kids and Bring Up Grades
programs. And more
There still are children who need our help. The most effective way to reach these
children is through expanding the Kiwanis membership in your club. Will you accept
the challenge? Are you the one to make a difference in your community?
Make a difference. Change the world one child and one community at a time.
