K-Kids Surveys for Members and Advisors 

End-of-Year Member and Advisor Surveys: In late April through May return to this page for information about the end-of-year surveys for members and advisors. The links to each survey will go live on Monday, April 10, 2023 and close on Wednesday, May 10, 2023.

Beginning-of-Year Member Survey: K-Kids advisors, thank you for asking your members to take the K-Kids Member Survey. The Beginning-of-Year Member Survey is now closed. Clubs that completed surveys were entered to win a US $50 Dollar Days gift card. Survey responses are helping us better understand members’ experiences, skills they gain and the topics they learn through K-Kids. Their feedback will help us refresh and update K-Kids resources for the 2023-24 service year!

We appreciate you!

Thank you for agreeing to serve as a K-Kids advisor. Your involvement is crucial to the success of K-Kids. And you have various sources of support. Volunteers within the district, known as K-Kids district administrators, are available to answer questions. Additionally, member services staff at Kiwanis International headquarters are also ready to help—they’re just an e-mail or phone call away!

Phone: 1-800-Kiwanis, ext. 411


Faculty 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.

Kiwanis advisor

The Kiwanis advisor’s role is to initiate organization of a K-Kids club in accordance with guidelines provided by Kiwanis International, obtain the approval of school officials for its establishment as a school organization, recruit initial members, schedule the organizational meeting, file the Petition for Charter, plan for the charter presentation event and after the club is fully operating, provide continuous coordination, counsel and assistance. The Kiwanis advisor is also responsible for conducting K-Kids club officers training to incoming leadership.

Optional parent advisor

The parent advisor provides support to the faculty advisor and club members. The parent advisor can assist the K-Kids club by reaching out to the school’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) or Parent Teacher Association (PTA), educating the parent groups about K-Kids and suggesting ways the K-Kids club and parent groups can work together.
