Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Why should a school or community organization add a new club?
A: Builders Club is different than most service clubs because it’s student-led—and designed for middle school students. It’s part of a large family of Kiwanis International service clubs.

Q: How many members does it take to start a club?
A: We suggest 15 or more members per club.

Q: How much time does a Builders Club take?
A: Clubs can meet as often as they wish, but usually meet weekly in the morning, after school or during an activity period.

Q: How many Kiwanis volunteers does it take?
A: It depends how the Kiwanis club wants to divide up the responsibilities. One Kiwanis member serves as the Kiwanis advisor, and a committee of club members may also work with the club.

Q: What are the liability issues for a Kiwanis club?
A: Liability insurance is covered through Kiwanis International. To learn more, read the You Are Covered document available at www.KiwanisOne.org/liability.

Q: Can a Kiwanis club apply a Builders Club to their Distinguished Club Award?
A: Yes. Learn more about the Distinguished Club Award criteria at www.KiwanisOne.org/distinguishedclubs

Q: Is the Builders Club program flexible?
A: Absolutely. Each club is run independently and can adapt to the needs of its members and advisors.
