Kiwanis International empowers people at every stage of life to become
competent, capable, and compassionate leaders by helping them learn
to help others. Through its Service Leadership Programs, Kiwanis teaches
young leaders new ways to change the world by serving one child and
one community at a time.
In sponsoring Service Leadership Programs the Banner Elk Club goes
beyond providing funds. It has opened the door to new opportunities for
club members to interact with local youth in a variety of capacities. The
Kiwanis Club of Banner Elk proudly sponsors Avery High School Key
Club, Avery Middle School Builders Club, Cranberry Middle School
Builders Club and Terrific Kids for elementary school students. Financial
support is given to the Mayland Aktion Club. BE Kiwanis provides
scholarships for students to attend Key Leader weekend. Young Children
Priority One is supported with three RIF Days when all Head Start, Pre-K and
Scotty Bus children receive their own books to keep.
