Builders Club is one of Kiwanis Club’s largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 45,000 members worldwide. Members learn to work together and develop servant-leader skills as they serve their school and community. In partnership with UNICEF and March of Dimes, the clubs are able to expand their outreach to babies and children of the world. Besides visits to seniors in assisted-living facilities locally, the St. Joe’s club planted a garden to use vegetables for meals in a soup kitchen. This community-based Builders Club was established through the Warren YMCA Family, Youth and Grants Department with coordinator Kim Slocum and St. Joe’s Advisor Pam Nasman, as well as the local Kiwanis Club of Warren. Members gave campaign-type speeches prior to the election of officers.
