KIWANIS CHANGES LIVES
Membership & Volunteering
MAKE AN IMPACT
Ready to help children and families in your community? Ready to change the world? Kiwanis is ready for you! All together, more than 7,000 Kiwanis clubs make Kiwanians a powerful force for serving children and changing lives. Each club is an independent entity, with its own traditions and priorities.
WHO JOINS KIWANIS
Kiwanis club members believe in service. They care about children. They’re interested in the community around them—because the community matters to them.
They’re people like you. Friends. Neighbors. Volunteers who want to make a difference. And they love to see the difference they make when they work together.
BENEFITS OF JOINING
Study after study shows that volunteering with an organization like Kiwanis does more than make people feel good. Volunteering enhances social networks, improves mental health and contributes to higher levels of happiness, self-esteem, self-worth and life satisfaction.
Volunteers develop life skills and leadership abilities that can lead to employment opportunities.
KIDS NEED KIWANIS
In an age of municipal budget cuts, decreased school funding and fewer civic organizations, Kiwanis is the safety net that creates opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live.
Kiwanis is a positive influence in locations worldwide with a dream that all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive.
