Get Ready to help children and families in your community? Ready to change the world? Kiwanis is ready for you!

Reach out to a Kiwanis club in your community and let them know you’d like to join. Contact a club member or officer. Let them know you’d like to learn more about Kiwanis.

Membership in a Kiwanis club connects a person with the community and other individuals he or she wouldn't otherwise know.  Club members learn about developments and happenings in their community during their regular club gatherings.  They also enjoy new social and business networking opportunities with the wide variety of members in their club.  And, together, they combine their interests and skills to improve their community in ways that make a real impact in the lives of others, particularly children.

Each club selects its members from the surrounding community.  Kiwanis clubs look for persons over 18 years old who are interested in their community and other people, and they seek members who can contribute four to six hours a month for club activities and projects.  After paying an induction fee upon joining, each member pays annual dues, which are set by the club.

New members participate in an orientation program which helps them determine how to become involved in ways that best match their personal interests and skills.  Members quickly learn that the benefits of membership increase with their level of participation in their club.  They find the "Kiwanis Connection" to be an excellent fit in their personal and professional lives.

Try these tips for contacting a local Kiwanis club:

  1. Find a club. Locate a Kiwanis club in your area. Choose up to three club locations near you to receive a personal guest invitation.
  2. Visit a club. Ask about visiting a Kiwanis meeting—or offer to speak at a meeting. It’s an excellent way to learn about Kiwanis, make contacts and let Kiwanis members know more about you.
  3. Phone home. If you need help getting in touch with a Kiwanis club, give Kiwanis International a call at +1-800-549-2647, ext. 411 or in Winnipeg at


  4. Explore Kiwanis culture. Kiwanis clubs are volunteer-based. Traditionally, club meetings take place once a week and offer an atmosphere of fun, learning and fellowship. Kiwanis members typically volunteer each month to assist with club service projects. In a typical year, Kiwanis clubs worldwide organize more than 150,000 service projects—both locally and globally—and Kiwanis members dedicate more than 12 million hours of service.
  5. Get involved. New members bring fresh energy and ideas to Kiwanis clubs. We invite you to reach out, learn more and get involved. Together, we can change the world, one child and one community at a time.
