  • Sharing your success

    As the end of the school year approaches, it’s a great time to give your sponsoring Kiwanis club a full report of what your Builders Club has achieved. If possible, attend a Kiwanis club meeting and make a short presentation. Here is some of the information you or club officers can include in the presentation:

    1. Service success. Share pictures and stories from the year’s service projects, and tell Kiwanians what the club members have learned from volunteering.
    2. Numbers. Show how much sponsorship means by giving the Kiwanians your club report, including the number of students in the club, total dollar amount raised, number of service projects, etc. Highlight the information included in the club’s Annual Achievement Report
    3. Invitation. Encourage the Kiwanis club members to come to the school year’s final Builders Club meeting or the year-end party.
    4. Feedback. Ask the Kiwanis club for ideas on next year’s service projects—and how the two clubs might be more involved with each other. 
    And don’t forget to thank your sponsoring Kiwanians! Club members could create thank-you cards and distribute them to the Kiwanians in attendance.

  • Boast about your club!

    Did your Builders Club do incredible things this year? Are you proud of your members and their accomplishments? Tell us about it! And earn a banner patch for doing so. 

    Complete the Annual Achievement Report online, or download and print a copy. The deadline to submit the report for a patch is June 30, 2016. Patches will be mailed to clubs in August.

  • Notice: New Kiwanis advisor background check procedure

  • Summer service challenge

    As the summer season approaches, so is the end of the Builders Club year for many clubs. But that shouldn’t stop members from continuing to serve others. At one of the year’s last club meetings, officers should lead a discussion on how every member can make a difference in someone else’s life every day. The club officers can then encourage each member to take the Builders Club summer service challenge. When the club reconvenes at the start of the next school year, members can share their experiences with the challenge—and report back on the many ways each person continued to use service leadership skills at home and in the community.
