Building Tomorrow's Leaders

Building a better future means more than helping those in need—it means teaching and inspiring tomorrow’s leaders.

To accomplish this, Kiwanis sponsors programs and clubs that can be found in thousands of schools throughout the world. Through these opportunities, children and young adults become competent, capable and compassionate leaders who will carry on our legacy of service to our community.
