About Metro Detroit Young Professionals Kiwanis
The Metro Detroit Young Professionals Kiwanis chartered in August of 2015. We are part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time. Our club was founded with the mission of bringing young professionals together from across all of Metro Detroit to serve our community. Through service, we aim to make young people leaders in our community. We emphasize hands on service projects and club socials to engage our members in what interests them most. While we do have club meetings, we only do so once a month to allow us to place a great emphasis on the work that we do.
We also aim to give young people easier access to service opportunities. In today's busy world, all young professionals have a lot to juggle. Our club will make finding ways to do service easier for you so that you can focus on the service you want to do without struggling to find a project.
What Makes a Young Professionals Club Different?
Our club will still focus on the mission of service that Kiwanis International has, but it will function in a way that is better suited to the lives of young professionals. Our club will:
- have less formal meetings
- place greater emphasis on hands on service then check writing
- have less expensive club dues
- meet less to ultimately serve more
- not levy fines at meetings
- place a greater emphasis on the fun factor of Kiwanis
Any young professional will be able to find a place within our club for the service work they seek.
