CKI Week is coming up! The week of October 16-21, 2023, is members’ time to shine a light on CKI, our service initiatives and the great work we’re doing on campus and in communities. Club can highlight the impact we make through CKI’s three tenets: Service, Leadership, and Fellowship. Use CKI Week to help your club earn publicity, build awareness and recruit new members!
CKI Week Guidelines
During CKI Week each club will focus on our three tenets: service, leadership, and fellowship. Here are some guidelines:
- Fellowship: October 16 & 17. Put an emphasis on building meaningful and lasting relationships through fun activities. Whether it’s with other members of your club, local Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs or friends in your district, make a genuine connection with someone in the Kiwanis family! Team up for a service project, organize an interclub social or just spend time with friends to celebrate fellowship through CKI.
- Leadership: October 18 & 19. People always talk about the value of a servant leader. Well, these days are designed for you to show off how you lead! Collaborate with others, reach out to local Kiwanians and focus on your personal leadership journey through CKI. No two members will have the same leadership experiences — so accept and embrace those differences to grow and lead together.
- Service: October 20 & 21. Whether we’re packaging food, building playgrounds or working with animals, each of us has a service project we love. CKI has a diverse group of partnerships that address a variety of issues. We challenge you to collaborate with our partners so we can continue to be catalysts within our communities. Project ideas are divided up by partnerships — so start planning now. And take lots of pictures!
