How We Serve
Kiwanis members are committed to providing their clubs, communities,
and the world with service. In fact, members dedicate approximately 6 million
service hours per year conducting charitable programs. And nearly two-thirds of
Kiwanis clubs devote more than 500 hours to service projects annually, with
individual members averaging 24 hours of service per year.
Kiwanis clubs and
members undertake nearly 150,000 service projects each year, contributing more
than $107 million and 6.2 million volunteer service hours. Together, we’re
changing the world, one child and one community at a time!

Service Leadership Programs
Kiwanians around the globe have one common goal: To
serve the children of the world. Kiwanis advocates this vision every day by
providing opportunities to serve for every member of a community through Service
Leadership Programs. Through these opportunities, youth and young adults around
the world become competent, capable, and compassionate leaders.
