  • Preview the 2016-17 K-Kids membership kit

    This year club members and advisors can expect to find all of the following (and more) amazing resources and materials in the membership kit:

          Member handbooks. Encourage students to refer to their handbook
          regularly during the year. By identifying personal passions and
          interests, K-Kids members will discover how they are connected to
          their club, school, community and the world. It’s also a handy tool
          for sharing information with parents. 

          Member cards, certificates and buttons. Ensure members receive
          one of each so they can show their K-Kids pride. Club officers can
          designate a day each week (preferably the club meeting day) for
          members to wear their buttons at school. 

          Bulletin board decor. Encourage members to display their K-Kids
          club pride and educate others about their service by using these
          bulletin board decorations.

          Pledge and calendar poster. Help the club stay on track
          throughout the school year by hanging the poster in the
          club meeting room—and make sure members keep it
          updated! 

          Table tents. Club officers can use these during club meetings. To
          keep the items in good shape, consider laminating them, or collect
          them after every meeting. Additional table tents are available for
          download. (For officers: kkids.org/tabletentsofficers. For other
          members: kkids.org/tabletents.)

          Happy stickers. Members can use these stickers to increase
          happiness in the school and community. Members simply give
          stickers to peers they want to make happy. 

          Advisor guide. Created for both the faculty advisor and the Kiwanis
          advisor, this guide is filled with information and tips for supporting
          a K-Kids club. You can also download a digital copy or
          purchase additional printed copies in the meeting items/literature
          section.

  • Member kits to arrive in September!

    To better serve our K-Kids, the 2016–17 membership kits will be mailed to all active clubs in September. To help ensure that the youth club receives its kit with enough materials, reach out to the sponsoring Kiwanis club secretary and have them complete the following steps by August 31:


    1. Round up info. The sponsoring Kiwanis club secretary needs to get
        the number of K-Kids/Builders Club members for the 2016–17 year
        and the address to which the kit should be mailed.

    2. (Kiwanis club secretary) Log into KiwanisOne at
        reporting.kiwanisone.org. On the secretary dashboard, under
        Sponsorships, select the “pencil” icon located next to each K-Kids
        club that your club sponsors.

    3. Update the club info. Confirm or update the membership count. 

    4. Update the mailing address. Verify or update the mailing address
        to which the membership kit should be shipped. 

    The sponsoring Kiwanis club will be asked to pay the renewal fee for the K-Kids club in October. The invoice for the club will appear under the Finance tab at the top of the Secretary dashboard at the beginning of the Kiwanis fiscal year. 

    Membership kits include membership pins, cards, advisor guides and much more! Please coordinate with the sponsoring Kiwanis club secretary to complete these steps by August 31 so the K-Kids club has resources to start their year of fun, fellowship and service!

    Important notes:
          If the faculty advisor information needs to be updated, send a
          detailed email to memberservices@kiwanis.org. If the Kiwanis
          advisor information needs to be updated, make this change on
          the front page of the Secretary dashboard under Sponsorships.

          If a K-Kids club will not be active in 2016–17, email
          memberservices@kiwanis.org at your earliest
          convenience so that a membership kit is not mailed in
          September.
