Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school students (ages 12 to 14), with more than 40,000 members worldwide. The first Builders Club was chartered in 1975. Today, there are more than 2,000 clubs in Aruba, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, Martinique, Netherlands Antilles, Philippines, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago, and the United States.
Builders Club, like K-Kids is a “student-led” community service organization, which operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Community-based Builders Clubs also may be established at community facilities such as: churches, libraries, YMCA’s, or lodges. Builders Club is unique because a Kiwanis club, composed of leading business and professional people of the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.
Builders Club is structured only on the local club level but is supported by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides programs, literature, and opportunities to relate to teenagers from countries all around the world!
Our local group meets weekly at the Beaver Creek Elementary School. We are winding down the school year, but are making plans for the summer program, as well as the school year.
