Changing Tomorrows Today


Kiwanis clubs view their role within their respective communities with a great deal of foresight. Key aspects to operating an effective club include: 

  • Evaluating both children’s issues and community needs on an ongoing basis 
  • Conducting service projects to respond to those identified needs 
  • Maintaining an active membership roster of community-minded people who have both the desire and the ability to serve 

Club meetings traditionally are held once every two weeks and offer an atmosphere of fun, learning, and fellowship. 

In addition to attending the meetings, the typical Kiwanian volunteers to assist with club service and fund raising projects. Service projects often are linked to the Kiwanis program, “Young Children: Priority One.” This initiative places continuing focus on the needs of children in pediatric trauma, safety, child care, early development, infant health, nutrition, and parenting skills. 

Service projects also can address other needs within the community, such as working to stop substance abuse, helping the elderly, promoting literacy, supporting youth sports, responding to disasters, and supporting specific persons in need.
