• Direct the development of Kiwanis programs, from membership growth to service initiatives.
• Provide guidance to Key Clubs—service organizations for teens.
Kiwanis members don’t just do service—they have fun! Members make new friends by being part of a club where they attend meetings, participate in community projects and social events. Kiwanis also provides excellent networking opportunity,
The six permanent objects of Kiwanis International were approved in 1924 at the Kiwanis International Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the decades, they have remained unchanged. • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
• To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
• To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
• To develop by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
• To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities.
• To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase in righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.
When you join Marion Noon Kiwanis, you become part of an international organization where service is at the heart of everything we do. World wide Kiwanis members stage nearly 150,000 service projects, devote more than 6 million hours of service and raise nearly $100 million every year for communities, families and projects.
Key Club is the oldest and largest service leadership organization for teens. It teachers leadership through service to others. Key Club internationally has 267,000. The young people build themselves as they build schools and communities. They make a difference in their communities and the world by organizing and participating in a variety of service projects, such as cleaning parks, assisting with Pancake Day, and organizing food drives. They also learn leadership skills by running meetings and planning projects. Marion City Schools is establishing a Key Club. We encourage schools in Marion County to contact us and we will help you establish a Key Club, too!
