About Kiwanis

Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis and its youth oriented Service Leadership Programs serve communities in more than 80 countries and geographic areas.

Kiwanis Facts

  • Kiwanis was founded in Detroit, Michigan, on January 21, 1915.
  • In the early years, Kiwanis clubs focused on business networking even then, members were serving the needs of the poor.
  • By 1919, the organization had changed its focus from business to service.
  • Kiwanis became an international organization in 1916 with the organization of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario.
  • Kiwanis limited its membership to the United States and Canada until 1962 when worldwide expansion was approved.
  • Until 1987, Kiwanis was a male only organization. But after years of debate and growing support, women were received overwhelmingly.

Most people join clubs because someone asks them to. Beyond sharing your personal experience, you will be a better recruiter if you can answer questions about Kiwanis and why our work is important.

Bring people together to help children with your enthusiasm and your knowledge about Kiwanis.
