Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs


Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs are leadership and character-building programs hosted in a school or community agency and often sponsored by a Kiwanis club or another civic organization such as a chapter of JCI. Service Leadership Programs have existed since the first Key Club was founded in 1925.  Since then, millions of students have been inspired to lead lives of service and significance through programs for all ages.
