MAKE AN IMPACT

Ready to help children and families in your community? Ready to change the world? Kiwanis is ready for you! Altogether, more than 7,000 Kiwanis clubs make Kiwanians a powerful force for serving children and changing lives. Each club is an independent entity, with its own traditions and priorities.

WHO JOINS KIWANIS

Kiwanis club members believe in service. They care about children. They’re interested in the community around them because the community matters to them.

They’re people like you. Friends. Neighbors. Volunteers who want to make a difference. And they love to see the difference they make when they work together.


BENEFITS OF JOINING

Study after study shows that volunteering with an organization like Kiwanis does more than make people feel good. Volunteering enhances social networks, improves mental health and contributes to higher levels of happiness, self-esteem, self-worth and life satisfaction.

Volunteers develop life skills and leadership abilities that can lead to employment opportunities.


KIDS NEED KIWANIS

Kiwanis is the safety net that creates opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live.

Kiwanis is a positive influence in locations worldwide with a dream that all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive.


Interested in joining Kiwanis? We would love to have you as a member! 

Kiwanis is a great way for all adults of any age, both men and women, to give back to the local community, and we always have a little fun while doing so. And for our youth, please check out the local Builders Club and Key Club at South Decatur!

For additional information please contact any local Kiwanian, e-mail the current president at president@westportkiwanis.com, or simply stop by during one of two monthly meetings held at 6:30 PM on the first and third Thursdays at the Westport Area Community Building.
