Each Builders Club district administrator earns funds for reimbursement by building new clubs within the district. Using the reimbursement form, district administrators can submit reimbursements for up to US$100 for each Builders Club chartered within the district during an administrator’s term. You are eligible to receive reimbursement for anything associated with promotion or support of the Builders Club program.

Kiwanis Youth Protection Guidelines:
There are more than 300,000 members in Kiwanis youth programs. Their care and safety is entrusted to every Kiwanis club member. For Kiwanis to be the premier provider of youth service clubs and programs, we must hold ourselves and fellow members to the highest standards of conduct and awareness.

Chartering information:  
A district administrator’s role is to promote Builders Club to potential sponsoring Kiwanis clubs and to promote those that take on this commitment. Builders Club chartering resources will assist you in accomplishing these goals.

Annual club renewal fee:
Beginning the year after the Builders Club is chartered, the sponsoring Kiwanis club will be billed for an annual renewal fee by Kiwanis International. After following the two steps to completing the renewal process, the club will receive a kit with resources.

Club reports:
In order to assist with fee collection and the maintenance of accurate contact information at Kiwanis International, district administrators must access information through Kiwanis. The Service Leadership Program Reports feature is a way to access information on clubs in your district. All Builders Club district reports are downloadable from the Kiwanis International database in an Excel document.

Annual contests and awards:
Clubs and individual members have an opportunity to participate in contests and win awards. Refer to the contest page online for categories, themes and recognition offered. 

Monthly advisor e-newsletters:
