Who we are--What we do
 

                                    DEFINING STATEMENT
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.

                                                PURPOSE
To improve the quality of life for children and families worldwide.
                                                  MISSION
As a thriving organization of men, women, and youth, we are dedicated to serving the children of the world and improving the quality of life worldwide.  Being committed to this mission calls each of us to live by the following six objects of Kiwanis:

    1. To Give Primacy To The Human And Spiritual Rather Than To The Material Values Of Life.

    2. To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
    3. To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.  

    4. To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
    5. To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
    6. To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.

These six Objects of Kiwanis were developed way back in 1915 and have never changed.
                                                    VISION
We will be the world's premier organization engaging adult and youth volunteers to improve the quality of life worldwide.

                                                    MOTTO
Serving the children of the world.
