Serving the Children of the World
Kiwanis Clubs focus on changing the world by serving
children, one child and one community at a time.
Kiwanis International was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan. In the
early years, members focused on business networking. In 1916, Kiwanis
became an international organization with the creation of the Kiwanis
Club of Hamilton, Ontario. In 1919, the organization changed its focus
to service. By 1962, worldwide expansion was approved. In 1987, women
officially were allowed into the membership.
Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in
countless ways. Each community’s needs are different — so each Kiwanis
club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person
cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn,
experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things happen.
Kiwanis members don’t just do service — they have fun. Members make new
friends by being part of a club where they attend meetings and
participate in social events. Kiwanis clubs also provide excellent
networking opportunities for professionals
