WHO WE ARE

Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 40,000 members worldwide.

Members learn to work together and develop servant-leaders skills as they serve their school and community. In partnership with UNICEF and March of Dimes, the clubs are able to expand their outreach to babies and children of the world.

The first Builders Club was chartered in 1975. Today, there are more than 1,200 clubs in Aruba, Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, Martinique, Netherlands Antilles, Philippines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United States.

Builders Club is a “student-led” community service organization that operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Community-based Builders Clubs can also be established at churches, libraries, YMCAs, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.

Builders Club is structured only on the local club level but is supported by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides programs, literature and opportunities to relate to teenagers from countries worldwide.

Promotional partners 

In exchange for visibility and recognition within Kiwanis-family clubs, Promotional Partners take an active and visible role in driving awareness of the Kiwanis brand and mission. Campaigns can be created by the Promotional Partner, co-created with Kiwanis or tied to an existing Kiwanis program area.
