Kiwanis Club of La Jolla
We Are Very Proud To Be Kiwanians!
Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different—so each Kiwanis club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed, and thrive, great things happen.
La Jolla Village
Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. The Kiwanis Club of La Jolla is proud to serve the needs of La Jolla Village, and its surrounding neighborhood communities. We have approximately 70 active members, meeting weekly in the fellowship hall of the Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Eads and Kline.
A family of
Kiwanis clubs focus on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time. To do this, many clubs also sponsor a Kiwanis family club to reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities. The Kiwanis Club of La Jolla sponsors the UCSD Circle K club (CKI) as well as two high schools, the Key Clubs of La Jolla High School and University City High School.
Traditional & Not
No two Kiwanis clubs look exactly the same. Each member’s and community’s needs are different, and each club should look different. Some clubs are very traditional, with weekly meetings and a strong sense of history. Other clubs don’t meet at all, and instead hold meetings online and only come together for service projects. Newer clubs may follow the 3-2-1 concept: 3 hours of service, 2 hours of social activity and a 1-hour meeting each month. Clubs should reflect their communities and their members and should work to meet their needs. Flexibility is key to a successful club.
Fellowship and fun
Kiwanis members don’t just do service—they have fun. Members make new friends by being part of a club where they attend meetings and participate in social events. Kiwanis clubs also provide excellent networking opportunities for professionals. Members meet new people from all over their region and the world through service projects, fundraising and by attending district and Kiwanis International Conventions.
