A 30 Second Elevator Speech on Kiwanis

Many know the concept of a 30-second elevator speech. If you are in an elevator or with a group of colleagues or friends, and someone asks you, "What Kiwanis is?" how would you answer? For a one-sentence reply, we recommend quoting Kiwanis' new Defining Statement: Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.

This should be helpful for a more detailed explanation:

Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Our members, Kiwanians, are service-minded men and women who are united in their commitment and compassion for others.

Any community need can become a Kiwanis service project, especially the needs of children. Kiwanis service projects range from efforts that help local communities to Kiwanis International's Worldwide Service Project to eliminate iodine deficiency disorders.

Kiwanis members dedicate more than six million volunteer hours and invest more than US$100 million in service projects to strengthen communities and serve children every year.

At Kiwanis, we want to ensure that all children have the opportunity to lead healthy, successful lives. We believe by helping one child, you help the world
