Who We Are

Who are we?

The Kiwanis Club of NYC Young Professionals, Inc. is a group of individuals who are interested in community service and networking. The club was formed in 2001 and members include professionals from several different fields (finance, arts, education, legal, government, non-profit, insurance, health, etc.) We formally hold club meetings once a month. In addition, we perform one or two varied and interesting service projects each month and try to remain flexible to accommodate everyone’s busy schedule. Although our current membership is young in age, we are looking for members of any age who are “young at heart.”

What is Kiwanis you ask? We’re a proud part of Kiwanis International and the NY District and work to build a better future through partnership with our sponsored youth organizations like Key Club and Circle K (a college service group–not the convenience store). We live out our mission: Kiwanis empowers communities to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children. Our club also strives to build on our Kiwanis Vision as well: Kiwanis will be a positive influence in communities worldwide – so that one day, all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive.

To learn more about our organization, please take some time to look at our club website; however, the best way to learn about our Kiwanis Club is to attend one of our club meetings, service projects, or social events in person!
