Sharing with your sponsoring Kiwanis club

Letting the members of your sponsoring Kiwanis club know what your K-Kids club has accomplished is the best way to thank them and let them know your club is making a difference. Because the Kiwanis advisor is a direct link to the sponsoring Kiwanis club, contact him or her to request time to present at an upcoming meeting. First, decide whether advisors will be the only presenters or if K-Kids members would like to participate. Next, decide how you will use a powerpoint, a picture slideshow, posters, etc. No matter who presents or how, here is what you should cover:

                Service success. Share pictures and stories from the year’s
                service projects. Include personal quotes by the members
                and describe how the club has made a difference in their
                lives. Tell Kiwanians what the club members have learned
                from volunteering, and why the club is important to the
                school and local community.

                Numbers. After completing the Annual Achievement Report
                 for Kiwanis International, this part should be a breeze. Show
                Kiwanis members the great work their club is sponsoring
                through your club report, including: the number of students
                in the club, total dollars raised, total number of service
                projects, etc. Highlight information in the Annual
                Achievement Report that you feel is most important.

                Invitation. Does your K-Kids meeting space have the
                capacity for extra guests? If so, encourage Kiwanis club
                members to come to the final K-Kids meeting or the
                year-end party. This is a great opportunity for Kiwanians
                to introduce themselves to K-Kids members and observe
                club culture first-hand. 

                Feedback. Were there projects your K-Kids club completed
                that were similar to the Kiwanis club’s? Ask Kiwanians for
                ideas for next year’s service projects. This will open the door
                to new possibilities and build momentum for the two clubs to
                be more involved with each other in the future. 

Following the presentation, don’t forget to formally thank your sponsoring Kiwanis club! Have your K-Kids members create thank you cards and distribute them to the Kiwanians in attendance.
