Over a Century of Service in Albuquerque
The Kiwanis Club of Albuquerque is a local service club that thrives on fellowship and service, with a bit of networking on the side. We are local club of Kiwanis International, whose mission is “Improving the World one Child and on Community at a Time“.
Started in 1917, the Kiwanis Club of Albuquerque was among the first Kiwanis clubs in the United States and we remain committed to helping our community in any way we can. Though our primary focus is on children, we understand that multiple aspects of life might need our support. Our members are willing to pitch in where we are needed.
The Kiwanis Club of Albuquerque has regular meetings with informative speakers, socials, and service projects. New members are welcome! If you are interested in joining us for a meeting or a project, reach out. Thanks!
