Kiwanis is a Global Organization of Volunteers Dedicated to Improving the World One Child and One Community at a Time


“To offer service and leadership opportunities to those who desire to serve the needs of children, youth and adults in our local community.

The Six Objects of Kiwanis:
  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
  • To develop by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic services, and to build better communities.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism, which makes possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.
