What we do

What is Kiwanis?
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child, one community at a time.

Kiwanis Name
The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.”  It was coined from an American Indian         expression, Nunc Kee-wanis.
Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities.  Kiwanis members help mentor the disadvantage, develop youth as leaders and much more.  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!
