Key Club is a co-educational service organization for high school students, organized and sponsored by a Kiwanis club.  It is a self-governing organization and elects its own officers, determines its own service activities, and establishes its own dues structure. Its Objects include the Objects of Kiwanis.  Once organized, a Key Club is continuously sponsored by a Kiwanis club. Although the ultimate responsibility for Key Club sponsorship is that of the Kiwanis board of directors, the sponsorship function is most directly carried out by the Kiwanis club Committee on Key Clubs, assisted by a faculty advisor (who may or may not be a Kiwanian) designated by the high school administration.

                                                  

K-Kids is the newest and fastest growing service organization for elementary students worldwide.  These clubs are ideally suited for students in grades 1 through 5 (ages 6 to 12).K-Kids clubs operate under school regulations and draw its members from the elementary school student body. KKids is sponsored by a local Kiwanis club, working in concert with parents, teachers, and school administrators to provide young children their first experience in service learning, community service, leadership development, and partnering with organizations committed to the welfare of the community.

                                       

Many young people believe in the idea of service. They welcome the chance to make a personal contribution to their school, community, and peers. Builders Club offers such opportunities to middle school-aged students. Its goal is to develop leadership qualities in young people through experiences in volunteer community service. As the motto "We Build" indicates, Builders Club is for young people who want to take positive, constructive action to build a better world for themselves and others. Builders Club members experience the thrill of accomplishment and the satisfaction of knowing their efforts make a difference for those they help.
