Kiwanis helps kids around the world. We are a community-based organization of men and women volunteers dedicated to supporting youth in our Municipality. Since 1952, we have been part of this global organization dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time. Our Kiwanis club looks out for our community and the Kiwanis international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty. Our Kiwanis club is generous with its time. We are creative with our ideas. We are passionate about making a difference. And we have fun along the way!
Kiwanis empowers communities to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children. Kiwanis strives to be a positive influence in communities worldwide — so that one day, all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive. Our local Kiwanis club fulfills the Kiwanis mission by serving our community through a number of activities – learn more about that here.
Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. Members stage approximately 150,000 service projects and raise nearly US$100 million every year for communities, families and projects. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.
The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Kiwanis International Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the decades, they have remained unchanged.
1: To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
2: To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
3: To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
4: To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
5: To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities.
6: To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.
