Key Club International is the high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. Key Club assists Kiwanis in carrying out its mission to serve the children of the world. High school student members of Key Club perform acts of service in their communities, such as cleaning up parks, collecting clothing and organizing food drives. They also learn leadership skills by running meetings, planning projects and holding elected leadership positions at the club, district and international levels. More info
Builders Club develops leaders through service. We’re all about middle school. If you want to make a difference in your life and community, check out Builders Club. Last year, more than 45,000 middle and junior high school students around the world were involved in this Kiwanis-family program, developing leadership skills while working with friends to help others in need. Their projects ranged from fundraising for HIV/AIDS prevention in Africa to recycling drives to cleaning up parks. As students maneuver this “in-between-stage” of life, Builders Club empowers them to be themselves, work together with friends, and implement plans through action. As an extension of Kiwanis International, Builders Club shares the mission of the building leaders to help children around the world. Through Builders Club, students become leaders at school, in their community, and in the world. More info
K-Kids is the youngest and fastest growing service organization for elementary students worldwide. These clubs are ideally suited for students in grades 1 through 5 (ages 6 to 12). K-Kids is a "student-led" community-service organization, which operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. K-Kids clubs can also be established in a community-based organization. Such organizations might include, but are not limited to: community library, Boys Club, Girls Club, YMCA, YWCA, or a church. K-Kids is unique because it's sponsored by a local Kiwanis club, composed of leading business and professional people of the community. More info
