More Than Just a Club

The Kiwanis Club isn't just any club. It's a global force with a local heart, dedicated to helping kids across the globe and right here in Sycamore. With a spirit of generosity, creativity, and a dash of fun, they tackle big challenges like fighting disease and poverty. 

But it's not all about the global scale; it's the local impact that makes the Kiwanis Club truly special. They believe in giving every child the chance to dream big and succeed, making our community a nurturing place for the next generation.

Service at Its Core

Service is what Kiwanis is all about. Imagine this: 150,000 projects and nearly $100 million raised each year, all aimed at making a difference in the lives of children. And it's not just about the numbers; it's the personal touch, the local impact. From sponsoring clubs for kids and teens to leading initiatives like Meals on Wheels, the Kiwanis Club of Sycamore is all in on changing the world, one child at a time.v

A Closer Look at Kiwanis in Action

Take the Key Club, for example. It's more than just a club; it's a movement. With about 100 members in Sycamore, they're throwing proms for senior citizens, beautifying schools, and so much more. These kids are learning the true value of community service, all thanks to the support and guidance of the Kiwanis Club.

Big Plans on the Horizon
