Bridge the gap: 3 fun ways to connect with Kiwanis-family clubs during Kiwanis Family Month

Nov 07, 2013
The Kiwanis family is made up of more than 580,000 members in clubs and programs for youth and adults around the world. Just like your immediate family, your Kiwanis family can help you learn and grow. There’s so much you can share with other members of the Kiwanis family. You just need to reach out and bridge the gap!

Now’s the perfect time. That’s because November is Kiwanis Family Month--an entire month dedicated to spending time with your Kiwanis family.  Are you familiar with all the Kiwanis family clubs and programs? There’s K-Kids, BUG and Terrific Kids for elementary school students; Builders Club for middle school students; Key Club and Key Leader for high school students; Circle K International for university students; Aktion Club for adults with disabilities; and, of course, Kiwanis for adults over 18.

How can you bridge the gap and spend some quality Kiwanis family time? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Discover your family. Do some research and find out more about the Kiwanis-family clubs and programs in your area. Just knowing about the clubs in your community is a great first step.
  2. Reach out. Invite someone from another club to attend one of your club meetings this month. Or plan to stop in to another Kiwanis-family club’s meeting or service project so you can see what goes on--and maybe even get ideas for your own club.
  3. Work together. Plan a  fellowship event or service project with other clubs in your area. Partnering with other local clubs can lead to fun, fellowship and inspiration.
