AKTION CLUBS: WHERE DEVELOPEMENT HAS NO DISABLILITIES
Aktion Clubs started as a Kiwanis Service Leadership Program in 1987. It is the premiere service program for adults with disabilities in the world with more than 500 clubs and 12,000 members worldwide.
- Aktion Clubs are member-lead organizations that promote community integration for members through service while providing leadership opportunities for adults with disabilities who are passionate about making a difference in their communities.
- Members participate in many community service projects and fundraisers to support local charities
- Member also support Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW) and the Kiwanis International Eliminate Project. SCAW is the Aktion Club’s service initiative that provides donations to support bed kits to children of any race and/or religion who will benefit the most, typically including those struggling to survive in underdeveloped and developing countries
Message from the Aktion Club Governor:
Hello, my name is Simone Taylor and I am your 2017-18 Aktion Club District Governor. I am a member of the Lansing Transition Central Aktion Club. I love Aktion Club because it has made a difference in my life and other members of my club. We are learning leadership skills and Aktion Club feels like a family. We like to get out in our community to do service projects like making cards and delivering them to The Pines Nursing Home, doing spaghetti fundraisers to purchase and deliver trees to military families in Texas and fundraising for the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. I would like to see our clubs connect more and do more activities together.
