Kiwanis Club of North Ridgeville was chartered in 2010 and is dedicated to serving the children of our community and of the world. The members of the club are comprised of a cross section of community volunteers dedicated to making a positive difference for our children and their future. The club continues to provide services to our community and children. We have three service clubs established: K-Kids (elementary), Builders Club (Middle School) and Key Club (High School).

Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.
A family of Servant leaders: To reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities, many clubs sponsor a Kiwanis family club — K-Kids for primary school children; Builders Clubs for adolescents; Key Clubs for teens; Circle K clubs for university students and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities.
Kiwanis International was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan. In 2015, Kiwanis celebrated its 100th anniversary with a big event in Detroit. In early years, members focused on business networking; but in 1919, the organization changed its focus to service. In the 1960s, worldwide expansion was approved and within the decade, Kiwanis International-Europe was formed, representing Kiwanians in 11 European nations. In 1987, women officially were allowed into membership.
Kiwanis International is a global organization of clubs and members dedicated to serving the children of the world. Kiwanis and its family of clubs, including Circle K International for university students, Key Club for students age 14–18, Builders Club for students age 11–14, K-Kids for students age 6–12 and Aktion Club for adults living with disabilities, annually dedicate more than 18.5 million service hours to strengthen communities and serve children. The Kiwanis International family comprises nearly 558,000 adult and youth members in 82 nations and geographic areas. Visit www.kiwanis.org for more information.
