Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 45,000 members worldwide.
Members learn to work together and develop servant-leader skills as they serve their school and community. In partnership with UNICEF and March of Dimes, the clubs are able to expand their outreach to babies and children of the world.
Builders Club is a student-led community service organization that operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Community-based Builders Clubs can also be established at churches,
libraries, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.
Builders Club is structured on the local club level but is supported by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides guidelines, programs, educational resources and club recognition opportunities.
Community service opportunities don’t stop with Builders Club. Kiwanis International is a global organization of members who are dedicated to serving the children of the world. Kiwanis prepares people of all ages to be the most engaged members of their communities. And each program is an opportunity to begin or continue a lifelong journey of service.
