Our Kiwanis Programs
Kiwanians around the globe have one common goal: To serve the children of the world. Kiwanis advocates this vision every day by providing opportunities to serve for every member of a community through Service Leadership Programs. Through these opportunities, youth and young adults around the world become competent, capable and compassionate leaders.
We empower youth at every stage of life, from elementary school through university to young adulthood. Here are the youth programs we sponsor in the community. If your child or grandchild's school does not sponsor a Kiwanis youth program, contact your local club for more information.
