November is Kiwanis Family Month

Builders Club is a program of Kiwanis International. In fact, the Kiwanis family has clubs for every age and ability. And we’re all focused on servant leadership. So why not serve together?

That’s the idea behind Kiwanis Family Month. This November, take some time to find out what these other clubs in your area are doing:

  • K-Kids: elementary school students (ages 6–12)
  • Key Club: high school students (ages 14–18)
  • Circle K: college and university students
  • Aktion Club: adults (18 and older) who have a disability
  • Kiwanis: over 200,000 adult members in more than 80 nations and geographic areas
Encourage  your club to reach out and set up a shared activity, fundraiser or service project. Here are a few ideas: 


  • Clean up a street or park.
  • Hold a pancake breakfast or dinner to raise funds for a cause.
  • Volunteer at a food bank—or collect, pack and deliver canned food.
  • Volunteer at the local animal shelter.
  • Create thank-you cards/gifts for law enforcement officers or firemen.
  • Create care packages and write letters to military members.
  • Make “no-sew” blankets to donate to a local shelter.
  • Make knit caps for hospitalized kids getting chemotherapy treatments.
And don’t forget to keep in touch with Kiwanis family members. You could invite Kiwanis club members to attend a Builders Club meeting—or host an appreciation night for your sponsoring Kiwanis club. Maybe even write notes of encouragement to members of other youth clubs in your area. 

Let’s strengthen the Kiwanis family’s impact . . . and our bond. When you get together, it might even get to be a habit!
