Growing Existing Kiwanis Clubs

Pennsylvania Kiwanis has a Growth Team with members that are ready to help your Kiwanis club grow! The team has been hearing some wonderful stories on how you are growing your clubs. We want to continue to make Kiwanis history. With your help, we can make this happen. If you would like some "tips and tricks" on how to grow your club, contact any of the committee members or Growth Chair Cathy Szymanski

Building New Kiwanis Clubs

You may wonder why do I need to put a new club in the neighboring city? They can join my club. You are correct, but people have different schedules, another Kiwanis Club meeting at a different time in the nearby community may attract a different type of person. It not only helps the children next door, it can energize your club and empower your members to grow your club in service and members. It is an amazing domino effect.

Participating in Growing and Building Clubs

Think about this: Committed volunteers have the ability to get others to participate. Participation does not require jumping into the pond with reckless abandon. Members should not be bullied into giving more of themselves than they believe they can handle. They should simply be encouraged to get their feet wet. After completing a small task, a member discovers the joy of truly being a part of it all. Then they want to invite their friends and family to participate on a project. That is why it is very important to keep new members active so that they bring this positive energy to service projects and they bring more hands of service with them.
