The Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 100,000 members worldwide. The club falls under the umbrella of the Kiwanis organization, whose mandate is to improve the lives of children around the world.
The Builders Club is open to all students in Gr. 6, 7, and 8 who are interested in helping out around the school, community, and world doing service projects and developing leadership skills. What makes this club unique and special is that the students find an "area of need" and they decide how they can go about meeting that need!
During the school year, Builders Club served their community around them by:
- holding "Random Acts of Kindness" events, whereby club members handed out candy canes and anti-bullying bracelets to every student and staff member at Abby Middle
- helping out at Breakfast with Santa and the Winter Festival doing face painting, children’s games and activities, and pancake breakfast clean-up
- raising money through a coin drive to help with children’s cancer research at BC Children’s Hospital
