K-Kids is the largest service organization for elementary school students, with more than 42,000 members worldwide. The first K-Kids was chartered in 2000. Today, there are more than 1,200 clubs in Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Jamaica, Malaysia, Martinique, Nigeria, the Philippines, Trinidad and Tobago and the United States.
K-Kids is a “student-led” community service organization that operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Community-based K-Kids clubs also can be established at churches, libraries, YMCAs, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.
K-Kids is structured only on the local club level but is supported by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides programs, literature and opportunities to relate to teenagers from countries worldwide.
Learn more about K-Kids club members and the projects they conduct by viewing past and current issues of the K-Kids Zone magazine. Download one of the K-Kids brochures to learn more information. Watch K-Kids videos.
