                                                                              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.
