Since 1925, Kiwanis Clubs have sponsored Service Leadership Programs. These programs inspire children, young adults, and adults with disabilities to serve their communities and develop leadership skills they can use for the rest of their lives. Kiwanians take great satisfaction in knowing they are helping to create the world’s next generation of great leaders and upstanding citizens.
KIDS NEED ADULTS WHO CARE.
That’s why people join Kiwanis clubs. They’re local groups of like-minded volunteers who make a difference. Friends. Neighbors. Anyone who loves serving together to change children’s lives.
Since 1915, these adult volunteers have been serving the children of the world through fundraising and hands-on service projects. Kiwanis created its family of sponsored leadership clubs to help people of all ages develop the heart to serve, answer the call to lead, and accept the courage to engage. All around the world — and in communities like yours — Kiwanis International is serving the kids who need us most.
