Serving as an Aktion Club advisor means using your many skills and your heart for service to create a club that welcomes and engages adults with disabilities. Your responsibilities range from being an empathetic leader and role model to being a good communicator and planner. Beyond creating a place where members feel like they belong, you are called to make club activities meaningful for members and for the community and causes they serve.

- Club operations. Steps for starting the club year; explanations of the roles of facility and Kiwanis advisors and the district administrator; guidelines for paying dues and completing monthly reports; information about contests and events; tips for member recruitment; guidelines for installing and training officers.
- Planning and meeting tools. Communication tips for working with members; a calendar with monthly tips and ideas; things to consider when planning; a sample meeting agenda; icebreakers; member engagement ideas.
