Everyone can identify a great leader. But what makes a leader great? It takes education and training. Kiwanis International is training the next set of great community leaders through Kiwanis Amplify, a new online leadership development program for those who want to amplify their team-leadership skills. 

Participants learn how to improve more than their Kiwanis club. They gain skills to improve careers, communities, schools and the lives of adults and children everywhere. More than 1,100 Kiwanians from 41 districts on five continents have participated in Kiwanis Amplify.  

Registration for the next class is open until March 24, 2023. The program starts April 3. If you have questions, you're invited to attend one of these webinars to learn more about Kiwanis Amplify. 

“I’ve had the opportunity for leadership training with companies like American Express, Hilton Hotels and Disney,” said Kelly Pena, a Kiwanis Amplify graduate from the California-Nevada-Hawaii District. “And I will tell you that Kiwanis Amplify rates up there with these top companies’ leadership programs.”  

More than 85% of those who responded to the post-program survey said they learned at least one new thing from every module. "This program has given us the opportunity to invest in our own club members in providing leadership knowledge and training,” said Jean Long Manteufel, another graduate from the Wisconsin-Upper Michigan District. “And it is awesome.”

Kiwanis Amplify is conducted online. Participants can complete their assignments at a time that's convenient for them. Eight leadership topics are covered in the course: 

  • The qualities of a good leader.  
  • Methods of communication. 
  • Planning engaging events.  
  • Promoting diversity, equity and inclusion throughout a team. 
  • Working with others. 
  • Sharing a message. 
  • Strategic planning. 
  • Self-care. 

The participation fee is US$200 for members of Kiwanis International. The fee is $600 for non-members.
