ABOUT KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL
 
Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers (like you and me) looking at ways to connect, get involved and make an impact. Kiwanis is home to the largest youth service programs in the world. Through service and leadership, you will be surprised how much kids can do to help others.

It was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan, and became an international organization with the creation of the Kiwanis Club of Hamilton, Ontario, the following year. In 2015, Kiwanis celebrates its 100th anniversary! 
 
In the early years, members focused on business networking but in 1919, the organization changed its focus to service. In the 1962, worldwide expansion was approved and within a decade, Kiwanis clubs soared to Europe, Asia, Australia etc.
 
Kiwanis is all about making friends and making an impact in your local community. When Kiwanis win, children win. Make an impact by service and leadership.

MOTTO : 

Serving The Children Of The World.

Central Valley Cyber Kiwanis is a service organization composed of passionate people committed to serving their own communities, irrespective of their faith, race or time-zone. They work for a way of life in which they believe, to change the fate of the society, one child at a time!

CLUB MEETINGS: 
This club is unique in its way. Members interact once or twice a month, as need be, through Conferance Call, emails and chat rooms. We have a public friendly forum and a member-only private forum for 24/7 interaction. Our blog is updated every week to keep the members and non-members engaged throughout the month.
 
MEMBERS
Our members in Lindsay, Hanford, Ontario, Porterville, Fresno and Visalia in California work really hard to help, support and "give back" to the communities that have made them what they are today. It is just sheer determination of each volunteer member to make it happen, that we are able to accomplish so much every year.
 
CLUB HISTORY:

The club was founded in 2008 and chartered in September 2009. With each passing year, we recruit former key club members and we currently have five former key club graduates in our club. The club sponsors 3 High School Key Clubs in Hanford, California and awards scholarships to graduating members each year. We are looking forward to creating "satellite clubs" in each area in order to facilitate members in performing their community service projects in a better way.
