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. Our meetings are every Tuesday at Noon @ Memories Conference Center (located at 2437 Back Orrville Rd., Wooster, OH 44691) and guests are always welcome!
Visit our MEETING SCHEDULE and see what exciting programs and speakers we have coming up!
NOVEMBER IS K-FAMILY MONTH!
Think of November as a month-long Kiwanis family reunion. During the month of November, members of Kiwanis and every Kiwanis-sponsored club unite in service, discovery and fellowship. This is the time to celebrate the work we’re doing to make the world a better place, to share what’s working in our own clubs and learn how other clubs succeed. The unity that exists among our nearly 600,000 members has the power to transform the world!
There’s a place in our family for you.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Each year the Kiwanis family dedicates more than 18.5 million hours to service and raises more than US$100 million for local and global causes. Our members come from all walks of life, all corners of the globe and from every age group and ability. But make no mistake about it—we are family. 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. We prepare Key Clubbers for success by equipping them with leadership skills, compassion and empathy. Key Clubs in our community are located at Wooster High School and the Wayne County Schools Career Center.
Circle K International
Circle K International is the world’s largest student-led service organization for college students. Now in 19 nations, this group is among the most passionate Kiwanis-family members when it comes to service. The College of Wooster is home to Wooster's Circle K Club.
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.
