Way to go!
In the 2018-19 Aktion Club Contest, State College Aktion Club achieved Distinguished Club status and Erie Aktion Club achieved Honor Club status! Congratulations to both clubs for all of their hard work and many years of great service to their communities!
More than 500 Clubs Serving Their Communities
Aktion Club is the only service club for adults with disabilities, with more than 12,000 members worldwide.
Aktion Clubs draw members from various organizations that support individuals with disabilities, as well as other community programs. Aktion clubs can also be established at churches, libraries, YMCAs, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.
Aktion Club is supported at the district level and by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides programs, literature and opportunities to relate to individuals with disabilities from countries worldwide.
Where development has no disability.
To develop competent, capable, caring leaders through the vehicle of service.
To provide adults living with disabilities an opportunity to develop initiative, leadership skills and to serve their communities.
- Character Building: The ability to the right thing, even when it might be the unpopular choice
- Leadership: The ability to listen, communicate, serve and guide others
- Inclusiveness: Accepting and welcoming differences in other people
- Caring: The act of being concerned about or interested in other people or situations
I pledge on my honor to follow the Objects of Aktion Club.
To better my community, my country and myself.
To help those in need.
To demonstrate loyalty to our community and nation.
And to encourage others to do the same
