The Kiwanis Club of Wooster has achieved Blue-level Today Club status...more
If service to others, particularly young people, is important to you, then you've come to the right place! The Kiwanis Club of Wooster's primary objective is a commitment to make children priority one, which means that all of our efforts are directed at improving the lives of young people in the community. We do this through a variety of programs and partnerships, including Safety Town, a week-long event that teaches children all about safety, both in and out of the home. We also help provide funding and labor for projects and programs in the community that help and support children.
We would love for you to join our club so that together we can deliver more service to the children, youth, and families of Wooster.

Meet the family of clubs that you and your family can become a part of right here in Wooster, Ohio:
Key Club International
Key Club is the oldest and largest high school service organization in the world. Key Clubs are in 36 countries and consist of members dedicated to bettering their communities and the world.

Aktion Club - COMING SOON TO WOOSTER!
Aktion Club is the only service club for adults with disabilities. Members develop confidence and self-esteem by adopting leadership roles within their clubs. They also discover their own talents as they use them to help others. The Kiwanis Club of Wooster is currently working with the Nick Amster workshop to bring the Aktion Club to Wooster!
Since 1915, these adult volunteers have been serving the children of the world through fundraising and hands-on service projects. Kiwanis created its family of sponsored leadership clubs to help people of all ages develop the heart to serve, answer the call to lead and accept the courage to engage. By working together, we can become an undeniable force for good in the world for children and communities.
