What is a Kiwanian?
A Kiwanian is a volunteerÂ that changes the world through service to children and communities. Throughout the United States,Â Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. Â Kiwanians developÂ youth as leaders, build gardens, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!

The name “Kiwanis” means “we trade” or “we share our talents.” It was coined from an American Indian expression, Nunc Kee-wanis.
Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They develop youth as leaders, build playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric research, and much more. No problem is too big or too small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!
