  • Save the date

    This year marks the 30th anniversary for Aktion Club! George D. “Jake” Swartout organized the first Aktion Club for adults with disabilities in Putnam County, Florida, in 1987. With the assistance of fellow Kiwanians Ed Brooks and Dick Wittner, the Aktion Club concept spread throughout the Florida District—and then throughout the Kiwanis world. Aktion Club continued to bloom for 13 years when it became an official Service Leadership Program of Kiwanis International in 2000.
    To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are hosting the Aktion Club Training and Leadership Conference in Florida and Michigan. Save the dates: September 15–17 (Michigan) and November 10–12 (Florida). Check out the website in the coming weeks for more information—and share with your club members. Let’s make this the best year for TLC yet!

  • Breakthrough and Aktion

    During the first week of the new year, 19 members of Key Club—the Kiwanis-family program for high school students—participated in the first-ever Breakthrough program in Miami, Florida. Hailing from communities throughout the U.S. and Canada, the students got a weeklong chance to serve the Miami community, learn from one another, speak with city officials and tour culturally rich areas of the city. 

    During a visit to the WOW Center of Miami, they attended an Aktion Club meeting and completed a service project with the club’s members—painting parking curbs and generally getting to know each other. The Key Clubbers also participated in the Aktion Club’s Happy Quarters activity, in which Aktion Club members and Breakthrough participants donated a quarter to share what they were most happy about. 

    The Breakthrough participants send their thanks to the Aktion Club of the WOW Center for an unforgettable experience.
