“Kiwanis is a great organization if you’re intent on giving to kids.  We’re trying to impact kids with everything we do” – Lejon “L” Poole, PHD.


Kiwanis is a place to connect through a shared dedication to service. What better way to make new friends and impact your community than by working together to help local children?

“It’s important for Kiwanians to identify the ways children in their community can benefit from a service organization.”  Sue Petrisin, President Kiwanis International.


Kiwanis is proud to be an inclusive organization where all people are welcome. We are found on every continent, striving to benefit children of all backgrounds.

“I immediately found the Raleigh Kiwanis club to be a place where I had shared ideals and values…It really made Raleigh feel like a smaller place.”  Jefferson Griffin
