About Us

                                                                                 Kiwanis Mission:

                                    To support and serve Long Beach, one child and one community at a time.

                                                                                       Who we are:

The Kiwanis Club of Long Beach, founded in 1919, has always maintained a strong and respected leadership with the city.  Many members are small business owners, representatives of large corporations, non-profit leaders, educators, individuals, retirees, moms, dads and anyone with a spirit of altruism and a desire to help make the community a better place by improving the lives of children and youth.

Through hands-on service projects and financial grants, the Kiwanis Club strives to enrich the lives of our community children.  Through the many partnerships with organizations who also focus on service projects, we support families

in need, the physically challenged, school youth programs and more.  Kiwanis provides mentor programs and career enrichment to high school Kiwanis "Key Clubs" and the Circle "K" college programs which teach service and leadership skills.  For more information about our history "Click here"
