Manatee County families, we’ve got exciting news for you! The Bradenton Kiwanis Club is launching a new family-focused initiative – The Kiwanis Club of Manatee River. This isn’t your typical Kiwanis club – it’s an opportunity for families, homeschool students, and private school students to come together, learn, and give back to their community.
If you’ve ever heard of K-Kids, Builders Club, and Key Club, you already have an idea of the types of service leadership programs you can expect from Kiwanis. This new club will feature programs for every student’s need and grade level and focus on family engagement and volunteering.
The best part? Adult and student meetings are held simultaneously, allowing families to collaborate on community service ideas and projects, all at one convenient time and location.
Join the Kickoff Meeting on July 12th!
Ready to dive in, or maybe just curious? The club is kicking off with an open house meeting on July 12, 2023 at the Manatee Performing Arts Center, located at 502 3rd Ave W, Bradenton, FL 34205.
The event will begin at 3:30 pm with a service project. The informational meeting will begin at 4 pm, and kids are welcome to continue with their projects while the adults attend the meeting.
This is a unique chance for families to discover how Kiwanis can support their family’s growth while giving back to the community.

Why Join a Kiwanis Club?
Kiwanis is an international organization on a mission to serve the children of the world. By becoming part of the Kiwanis Club of Manatee River, you’re not just joining a local club—you’re joining a global movement of community service and positive change.
Your community is where you live, where your kids go to school, and where you spend most of your time. That’s why it’s so important to help your community. But with so many things you can do, it can be hard to figure out where to begin. Joining a Kiwanis club is a chance to jump right in and start helping.
When you join, you’ll also have a chance to:
- Make a difference – giving back to your community feels great and makes you happy!
- Make new friends – volunteering with like-minded people is a great way to get to know people in your community.
- Help Kids – volunteering with your family helps kids and makes your community a better place.
This is more than just a club; it’s a stepping stone towards improving our community, one child at a time!
Check out the event on the 12th, you’ll be glad you did!
