Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
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!
To serve children of the world.
Each year, clubs:
Members and clubs have contributed more than $80 million toward the global elimination of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD), the leading preventable cause of mental retardation.
The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.

Kiwanis does not impose a minimum attendance requirement for members. We ask only that you participate in club projects, committees, and when you are ready, leadership. We encourage attendance at meetings and strive to make them interesting with speakers who address the needs of the community and our members. We encourage all members to suggest programs and projects for the betterment of the club and our community.
