  • READY TO SPREAD DISABILITY AWARENESS?

    Aktion Club’s new service initiative is coming! Thanks to a partnership with the Joseph Maley Foundation, members will soon have an opportunity to educate elementary school students about disabilities—and the abilities we all share.

    disABILITY Awareness gives members some hands-on experience while helping to fulfill the missions of both Kiwanis International and Aktion Club.

    A pilot session for disAbility Awareness was conducted earlier this fall, and another is scheduled for spring. Updates and refinements will be made over the next several months before the big reveal at the Kiwanis International Convention in June 2018.

    The program kit contains awareness activities for Aktion Club members and advisors to conduct during sessions at local elementary schools. in fact, this service initiative is designed for clubs to use year after year. Look for updates in the coming months on how you can get your kit in 2018!

  • TLC 2017 WRAP UP

    This past year, Aktion Club hosted two Training and Leadership Conferences. In Michigan and Florida collectively, more than 250 members, advisors, caregivers and volunteers participated. And once again, the events gave participants opportunities to learn new things about service and leadership—while meeting old friends, making new ones and gaining inspiration to take back home.

    For a few years now, the TLCs have been useful and inspiring events for Aktion Club members and those who mentor and serve them. But they have also proven to be excellent Kiwanis-family events. This year, CKI and Key Club participated in both locations, helping with set-up, clean-up, social activities, service and workshops. Both events also benefited from enthusiastic participation by local Kiwanis clubs and their district leadership.

    Thanks again to everyone who made the 2017 Aktion Club TLCs a success. Be on the lookout for information on the next TLC, which will be held in conjunction with the Kiwanis International Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, in June 2018!
