in community service? When you arrive on campus, you
will find that numerous organizations will vie for your
time and membership. In college, you will find that many
clubs and organizations promote volunteerism and
community involvement. In fact, many universities have
adopted a service learning program. However, these
programs, clubs, and student organizations do not offer

you will find in CKI. Circle K’ers are committed to

abilities of all people, and to dedicate myself
to the realization of mankind’s potential.

positively influence members of society who are
facing ultimate personal decisions and those who
will one day create the vision of mankind for

needed to become active citizens. Members can
assume leadership responsibilities at all levels
of the organization and through various
experiential training conferences.
CKI members experience fellowship and develop
lifelong relationships with fellow collegians,
advisors, Kiwanians, and citizens in their
communities every single day. Whether a member
is mentoring a child, networking with a
businessman, or bowling with members, he or she
is developing social skills, meeting new people,
and strengthening relationships.
