Succeeding in K-Kids - A parent’s guide
Welcome parents. This area of the Kiwanis Kids website provides useful resources to assist you in helping your child learn the most from his or her K-Kids experience.
What is K-Kids?
K-Kids is the largest service organization for elementary school students, with more than 42,000 members worldwide. K-Kids is a “student-led” community service organization that operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Community-based K-Kids clubs also can be established at churches, libraries, YMCAs, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.
