Branches of the Kiwanis family

Kiwanis International

Since 1915, these adult volunteers have been serving the children of the world through fundraising and hands-on service projects. Kiwanis created its family of sponsored leadership clubs to help people of all ages discover their passion to serve, the desire to lead and the strength to engage. By working together, we can become a force for good in the world for children and communities.

Aktion Club

Aktion Club is the only service club for adults with disabilities. Members develop confidence and self-esteem by adopting leadership roles within their clubs. They also discover their own talents as they use them to help others.

Circle K International

Circle K International is the world's largest student-led service organization for college students. Now in 19 nations, this group is among the most passionate of Kiwanis-family members when it comes to service.

Key Club International

Key Club International is the high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. High school student members of Key Club perform acts of service in their communities, such as cleaning up parks, collecting clothing and organizing food drives. They also learn leadership skills by running meetings, planning projects and holding elected leadership positions.


K-Kids is where elementary school students begin developing their hearts for service. This student-led service leadership program builds leadership skills and strong moral character while giving students an opportunity to participate in service projects.
