If your child isn't involved yet, but you're interested in learning about the programs and how to bring a program to your school or community center then you've come to the right place.
There are three different Kiwanis Kids programs, which can be established at an elementary school or as a community-based program at a community center. A Kiwanis club made up of civic-minded people within the community sponsors the program and provides programming, financial support and volunteers.
K-Kids community service club
K-Kids is a student-led community service club for elementary-age students that teaches members the value of helping others through participation in community service projects and club activities. Students conduct a community assessment, determine what needs exist, and plan and conduct service projects.

Students work with their classroom teacher to establish goals linked to one of the Terrific Kids character traits, which focus on improving behavior, peer relationships, attendance or schoolwork. All students who achieve their goals are recognized as Terrific Kids.
Bring Up Grades
Bring Up Grades or BUG is a program designed to recognize students who raise their grades into an acceptable range, and maintain or continue to raise them from one grading period to the next. Recognition includes being placed on the school's BUG Honor Roll. A SUPER BUG also is honored as part of this program. This is a student who serves as a mentor assisting others in achieving their goals of bringing up one grade.
