Who are Kiwanians?
Your neighbor, your child's teacher, your banker; retired, young, middle-age; college students, full or part time employed; we are a cross-section of your community - from every walk of life. We are people who enjoy reaching out and helping others. Giving children the extra encouragement to make them succeed. We are active in the community, helping to make Brockton a great place to live, work, and play.
Members of the community who are interested in volunteering their time and talents to the children of Brockton are invited to learn more about Kiwanis. If you find that our objects and activities match yours, please join us at one of our meetings. Contact information is on the home page.
