CLUB OF SCOTT'S PLAINS
Peterborough, Ontario, Canada
SERVING THE CHILDREN OF OUR COMMUNITY AND AROUND THE WORLD
One Project at a Time
Children everywhere are in need of compassion, encouragement, advocacy, and strong role models. Kiwanis clubs worldwide host over 150,000 service projects each year, projects that positively impact our youth. Some of these projects include community cleanups, reading and breakfast programs, mentorship programs, and funding new playground equipment, school supplies, and even schools.
Leaders come in all different sizes! Kiwanis empowers members of all ages to share innovative ways to improve the communities and lives of children everywhere. From conferences and workshops to leading committees and organizing events, Kiwanians of all ages encounter many opportunities to utilize, strengthen, and learn new leadership skills.
Many of our members form life-long friendships within the club. Kiwanians around the world are bonded by a mutual interest in helping children thrive. Regular club meetings encourage members to meet and connect with others in their community who share a passion for helping our youth find their potential. Conferences and workshops provide opportunities for members to make connections world-wide.
