Welcome

Hello and Thank you for visiting the Kansas District of Kiwanis.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers, dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.

The Kansas District is comprised of 88 Kiwanis clubs making a difference in their communities and in the lives of children. Children are priority one in the Kiwanis organization. Through our service projects, fundraising efforts and sponsorships, we dedicate ourselves to help make the world better for the children living here. Through Kiwanis sponsorships we hope to teach children about servant leadership, giving back to their communities and being role models for younger generations to follow.

Kiwanis International is unmatched in programs offering opportunities for young people to grow in leadership skills, experience the joy of serving others and learn more about themselves, their communities and the world. Through these opportunities, youth and young adults become competent, capable and compassionate leaders. The Kansas district support these service leadership programs:



What opportunities are there in your community for the whole family to serve?

Builders Club - for middle school and junior high students
Nearly 40, 000 middle and junior high students in 1,300 clubs in 18 nations contribute service to school and community while developing leadership and people skills.

Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive, Capable.



Bring Up Grades (BUG) is a program designed to provide recognition to students who raise their grades into an acceptable range, and maintain or continue to raise them from one grading period to the next.

What if you could save a baby's life?

With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
