What is the role of the club advisor?
Each K-Kids club has a faculty advisor chosen from the faculty, staff or administration of the school. The faculty advisor works closely with both the K-Kids club and the sponsoring Kiwanis club. The faculty advisor is familiar with the school's procedures and acts as liaison between the K-Kids club, Kiwanis club and school administration.
If the K-Kids club is a community-based club, then a staff person from the facility should fill this role.
