One can make a difference. This is a fundamental tenet behind Kiwanis International. As a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time, Kiwanis strives to pass on the message that anything can be accomplished through the coordinated efforts of each individual member.

The name "Kiwanis" means "we trade" or "we share our talents." It is 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. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen!
