Kiwanis Kids, with more than 36,000 members, is a service leadership program for primary school students. K-Kids provides students with opportunities to work together on service projects, develop leadership potential and create strong moral character.
K-Kids is a "student-led" community-service organization, which operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. K-Kids clubs can also be established in a community-based organization. Such organizations might include but are not limited to a community library, Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, YWCA or church. K-Kids is unique because it's sponsored by a local Kiwanis club, composed of leading business and professional people of the community.
Service and fundraising
K-Kids service projects include organizing clothing, book, food and recycling drives; planning teacher-appreciation events; creating greeting cards for nursing home residents; making sew-free blankets for children’s hospital patients and making picture books for kindergarten students. K-Kids are currently raising funds for The Eliminate Project, a joint effort of the Kiwanis family and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus from the face of the Earth, especially through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.
