Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. We are always looking for service and community-minded individuals to join us in service to the Amarillo area.

Kiwanis Objects

The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 International Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the decades, they have remained unchanged.

bulletTo give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
bulletTo encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
bulletTo promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
bulletTo develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
bulletTo provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
bulletTo cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
