What does the Kiwanis Club of St. Catharines do?
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
Kiwanis, through guidance and example, works to develop future generations of leaders. Every day, Kiwanians are revitalizing neighborhoods, organizing youth-sports programs, tutoring, building playgrounds, and performing countless other projects to help children and communities.
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!
Our special interest of “Young Children: Priority One” focuses on the special needs of children from prenatal development to age 5 and in a typical year YCPO service projects involve more than US$14 million and 1 million volunteer hours globally.
