Thank you for your interest in joining the Bradenton Kiwanis. It is because of our members, that we truly make a difference in our community “one child at a time.”
The Bradenton Kiwanis supports many programs in this community. You can see our members actively engaged in Kiwanis programs such as Terrific Kids, which promotes good behavior in our local schools. Students of all ages participate in club sponsored leadership development programs such as K-Kids (elementary) and Builder’s Clubs (middle school) programs to provide opportunities for children to develop their skills. High School and college students affect change in our community through the Kiwanis-sponsored programs Key Club and Circle K. None of these programs would be possible without Kiwanis members supporting them.
Local community programs like Better Manatee Day and Big-K Mentoring are Bradenton Kiwanis-sponsored events. Our club also supports infants & pre-schoolers through programs like the Back to Sleep campaign, childhood immunization campaigns, and recently the “every child a reader” program. We also have “Christmas in August,” a program dedicated to providing the “back to school needs” for over 500 Manatee County’s homeless children.
Being a Kiwanian is fun, making new friends and business contacts with others who share common interests. Our meetings, each Tuesday at 12:15 at Bradenton Kiwanis Hall in the Manatee Performing Arts Center, are meant to enrich the lives of our members and guests through education, entertainment, and service.
We invite you to join our club. Become a member of a community-changing organization and make a difference in someone’s life!
Each new member must have a Sponsor and Endorser to help the new member become fully involved in the club. The Sponsor is the primary person who should be monitoring new member’s involvement in the club, and the Endorser steps in if the sponsor is unable to fulfill that responsibility. Their other responsibilities are:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about joining.
How to sign up and join a committee - review the committees and email the committee administrator (VP of Communications) to be added as a member of the committee. A good recommendation is to pick a committee that you are passionate about the cause.
The best way to sign up to volunteer for a Kiwanis event is to reach out to the volunteer coordinator for that event. We also will post the upcoming service events in the calendar online - which you can RSVP to volunteer.
