K-Kids at Tipton Elementary School

Tipton Elementary School K-Kids is sponsored by the Tipton County Kiwanis Club.

THE SERVICE LEADERSHIP MODEL

LEADING BY HELPING OTHERS

K-Kids provides opportunity for helping others.  Our service leadership model is the powerful force that occurs when a person's heart to serve unites with his or her call to lead.

THE HEART TO SERVE

Making a difference within the school and community is what K-Kids is all about! Club members identify needs within the school, community, state and nation.  They then develop a plan of action to meet those needs. Whether it's canned goods for those in need or organizing a Riley Hospital donation, K-Kids members have the opportunity to work together with Kiwanis-family volunteers to make the community and the world a better place.

K-Kids can provide opportunities for students to discover their heart to serve. When students discover their heart to serve, they decide that serving others is a new, exciting way of life. The service club experience at a young age can help students accept their own ability to make a difference, enhance their knowledge of their own passions and convictions, and develop their ability to empathize with those in need in their communities.

THE CALL TO LEAD

K-Kids can help young people answer their call to lead. Every person has leadership potential, and service clubs provide a forum for young leaders to unlock theirs. Someone with a call to lead will decide to step forward when the easier choice might have been to stand still. The service club experience at a young age can help students accept their own identity as a leader, enhance their knowledge of how to be a leader who is others-centered, and develop their ability to move an idea into purposeful action.

THE COURAGE TO ENGAGE

K-Kids can be excellent forums for students to exercise the courage to engage. Someone who exercises the courage to engage decides to live a life of collaboration and not isolation. More than ever before, young people need to develop the capacity to effectively interact with others face-to-face. The service club experience at a young age can help students accept that collaboration is a key to success, can enhance their knowledge of how to build coalitions to address community needs, and can develop their ability to build strong human connections through conversation.
