Welcome to Cal-Nev-Ha
An Aktion Club is an official Kiwanis International Sponsored Service Leadership program oriented to adult citizens who live with disabilities and who are interested in service to their communities. Aktion Club is the newest member of the Service Leadership Programs sponsored by Kiwanis International.
Aktion Club members meet regularly where they develop leadership skills, learn about issues of interest, plan service and fundraising projects and enjoy Kiwanis Aktion Club fellowship. Aktion Club members perform a variety of community services, such as environmental projects, park beautification, help at homeless shelters, nursing home visitations, and assisting their sponsoring Kiwanis Club with their projects. Aktion Clubs also take time out for fun! Aktion Club members visit local attractions, go to sporting events, conventions, hold dances, and enjoy bowling among other activities.
The Aktion Clubs of the Cal-Nev-Ha District provide leadership and service opportunities in 49 clubs to over 1300 individuals with special needs and intellectual disabilities.
The Mission of Aktion Club is to:
Provide Aktion Club members an opportunity to develop initiative and leadership skills
Help Aktion Club members serve their community
Assist Aktion Club members to become more integrated into their community
