What is a Kiwanians?


An individual of good character who adheres to the standards of good conduct in a community and believes in and subscribes to the Objects of Kiwanis International. The individual believes in giving primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than the material values of life; believes in treating other human being as the individual would like to be treated in all human relationships;  believes in the promoting the adoption and application of higher social, business and professional standards; desires to develop by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship; believes in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill; and the individual desires to provide through this club a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build a better community.


In Good Company…..


Well over 300,000 Kiwanians in more than 8000 clubs serve in 71 countries around the world.

In today’s high school and colleges, key Club International and Circle K are among the largest, if not the largest people serving organization designed for young people.
