Welcome back! Now let's get started

K-Kids clubs are sponsored in partnership with schools, community organizations and Kiwanis Clubs. Advisors serve as mentors for the club. Scheduling a planning meeting with your Kiwanis or faculty advisor prior to the club’s first meeting is a great way to start the year. 

First, take some time to review club bylaws, the K-Kids advisor guide, the Youth Protection Guidelines, and (for Kiwanis advisors) ensure your criminal history background check is complete.

During the meeting, review your club calendar, budget, and member recruitment plan. If officers were not elected last school year, make a plan to conduct elections. Then review officer training (see our sample installation ceremony script for additional assistance). 

Next, schedule a time to meet with your advisor and the club’s school principal (if applicable) to go over plans and goals for the upcoming year. This will help tremendously when considering potential member contests, service projects, parent engagement ideas, fundraising activities and awareness-building events. It will also help to strengthen the bond between your club and school.  

If you have any questions as the year progresses, please contact your district administrator or email Kiwanis International at memberservices@kiwanis.org.
