Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students (ages 12-14) in the world. Currently there are more than 40,000 members world wide.

The first Builders Club was chartered in 1975. Today there are more than 2,000 clubs in Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Canada, Europe, the Philippines, the Pacific and the United States. New York has members in 65 Builders Clubs, sponsored by 54 Kiwanis Clubs. This age group (12-14) is perfect for the Kiwanis Family. First, the young people are too young for jobs, too young to drive, and they have time to help their community. They think they are adults, only “No one will let me prove it!” We in Kiwanis will let them prove they are able to behave like adults through Builders Clubs. Builders Clubs are “student-led” organizations that teach hands on leadership skills through service to others. Give these kids a chance and they will outshine adults every time. This age knows no limits. They think in terms of what they can do, not what they can not do.
