The Kiwanis Family is made up of individuals of all ages all with one goal, to serve our local community and the world. Kiwanis clubs focus on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time. To do this, many clubs also sponsor a Kiwanis family club—K-Kids for primary school children; Builders Clubs for adolescents; Key Clubs for teens; CKI clubs for university students and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities—to reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities.
Kiwanis International offers three clubs for adults:
- Kiwanis-located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways by working together. Members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.
- Aktion Club-the only community service club for adults living with disabilities. It provides members opportunities to become integrated into their communities while developing initiative and leadership skills.
- Circle K International-is a university service organization with clubs on 500 campuses.
Kiwanis clubs serve their communities by sponsoring 150,000 service projects each year.
Kiwanis International offers three clubs for youth:
- Key Club-the oldest and largest service organization for teens, teaches leadership through service to others.
- Builders Club-for adolescents provides students with opportunities to develop leadership, improve self-esteem, increase civic engagement and learn life skills through service.
- Kiwanis Kids-for elementary students provides students with opportunities to work together on service projects, develop leadership potential and create strong moral character.
