The principle core of the Kiwanis mission is the belief that the most effective way to enhance a community is to enhance its children.  When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream and succeed, great things will happen.

Kiwanis club sponsors Kiwanis-family organizations that provide young people and adults with opportunities to perform community service and develop leadership skills. K-Kids clubs in elementary schools, Builders Clubs in junior high and middle schools, Key Clubs in high schools, Circle K clubs at the collegiate level, Kiwanis Junior clubs for young adults in Europe, Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities, and Key Leader, a youth development leadership program, reach out to those in need and develop future generations of leaders. K-Kids, Bring Up Grades (BUG) and Terrific Kids are all part of the Kiwanis Kids program to help develop self-esteem, leadership skills, morals and standards, and respect for others at an early age.
