Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of West Omaha
 
Founded in 1938 for Kiwanis Club of Greater Omaha and founded in 1961 for Kiwanis Club Westside which have merged together to form the Kiwanis Club of West Omaha. Each has a rich history of community service throughout the years. We are an eclectic mix of ages, genders, occupations, backgrounds and interests. We are all passionate about making our community and the world a better place for children so they can thrive. We are devoted to serving the children in our local community and also children all across the country and worldwide through unique and innovative service projects and fundraising initiatives. Members and invited guests meet each Monday at Noon for food, fellowship, and for the opportunity to hear from speakers about important matters in our region.

Dedicated to serving the children of the world, this global volunteer organization annually raises US$133 million and dedicates more than 19 million hours to strengthen communities and help children. Through service projects and fundraisers, Kiwanis members improve their communities, make lifelong friendships and, most importantly, help children reach their full potential.

ADULTS

Kiwanis International offers three clubs for adults: Kiwanis, Aktion Club and Circle K International. Kiwanis clubs serve their communities through more than 152,000 service projects each year. Aktion Club is the only community service club for adults with disabilities. It provides members with opportunities to become integrated into their communities while developing initiative and leadership skills. CKI is the world’s largest student-led collegiate service organization, with clubs on college and university campuses in 17 nations and geographic areas.

YOUTH

Kiwanis offers three clubs for youth: Key Club, Builders Club and K-Kids. Key Club is the oldest and largest service organization for teens and teaches leadership through service to others. Builders Club provides students in their early teens with opportunities to develop leadership skills, improve self-esteem, increase civic engagement and learn life skills through service. K-Kids gives elementary school students opportunities to work together on service projects, develop leadership potential and create strong moral character.

Kiwanis offers programs for students: Terrific Kids, Bring Up Grades and Key Leader. Terrific Kids and Bring Up Grades, both for students age 6-12, teach children to plan, set goals, work with others and celebrate success. Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership retreat for teens.
