"A typical Kiwanis club is a snapshot of its community, with members from all walks of life and at every step of the career ladder. They are unified in their belief that children and their communities benefit from the efforts of a proficient group of caring and involved volunteers."


Kiwanis members are guided by these key principles:

To give importance to the human and spiritual rather than the material values of life.
To encourage living by the Golden Rule.
To promote higher social, business, and professional standards.
To encourage and be servant leaders.
To build Kiwanis clubs that build lasting friendships and serve and strengthen local communities.
To promote justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
