Charlottesville Kiwanis

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers, both men and women, dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.

Chartered on April 3rd, 1922, the Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville has thirty-nine members who come from many different backgrounds and are all dedicated to fulfilling our motto: "Serving the Children of the World." 

Our club sponsors Key Clubs in five area high schools (Albemarle High School, Monticello High School, Western Albemarle High School, Charlottesville High School, and Fluvanna County High School), a CKI Club at the University of Virginia, and a K-Kids Club at Venable Elementary School.  More than 400 youth in these seven clubs are engaged in programs that teach leadership skills and perform meaningful community service projects.

We meet on the first, second, and third Mondays of every month at 6:30 p.m.   The fourth Monday, and the occasional fifth Monday, have been designated as "Service Work Night" at a different local agency each month.  Guests are cordially invited to share a meal with us and learn about opportunities to join us for volunteer service that contributes to the betterment of our community.  Please see our meeting schedule for the latest information about when and where we gather "to serve the children of the world."

Our fourth-Monday service work nights typically take place at a local non-profit. Among the places where we have worked over the last year are: WorkSource Enterprises, Camp Holiday Trails, Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity store, Children, Youth and Family Services, Salvation Army Thrift Store, and the Green Adventure Project at Triple C Camp.

Kiwanis International was founded in Detroit, Michigan in 1915. There are over 350,000 Kiwanians and more than 600,000 K-Family members in 84 countries around the world.  KI's current worldwide service project, in conjunction with UNICEF, aims to Eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from the face of the earth.  This project follows KI's previous successful project, also with UNICEF, of eliminating Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD), the leading preventable cause of intellectual disabilities,  worldwide.

The Charlottesville Club is one of more than 180 Kiwanis Clubs in the Capital District of Kiwanis, providing community service throughout Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia.   In addition to our club, Division 9 of the Capital District has clubs in: Alleghany Highlands, Harrisonburg, Lexington, Shenandoah Valley, Staunton, and Waynesboro
