What is K-Kids? 

K-Kids is the youngest and fastest growing service organization for elementary students worldwide. These clubs are ideally suited for students in grades 1 through 5 (ages 6 to 12).

K-Kids is a "student-led" community-service organization, which operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body.

K-Kids clubs can also be established in a community-based organization. Such organizations might include, but are not limited to: community library, Boys Club, Girls Club, YMCA, YWCA, or a church.

K-Kids is unique because it's sponsored by a local Kiwanis club, composed of leading business and professional people of the community.

The K-Kids' pledge:

"As a K-Kid, I promise to serve my neighborhood and my school; I will show respect toward my environment; and I will try to make the world a better place in which to live."

The K-Kids' motto is "We Build," and its objectives are:

  • To provide opportunities for working together in service to school and community.
  • To develop leadership potential.
  • To foster and development of strong moral character.
  • To encourage loyalty to school, community, and nation.
