Builders Club

Drumont "Dru" Bowman, Chair -

Builders Club, a Kiwanis Service Leadership Program, is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 40,000 members worldwide. Members learn to work together and develop servant-leaders skills as they serve their school and community. In partnership with UNICEF and March of Dimes, the clubs are able to expand their outreach to babies and children of the world.

Builders Club is a student-led community service organization that operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Community-based Builders Clubs can also be established at churches, libraries, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA's, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor.

Builders Club is structured on the local club level but is supported by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides guidelines, programs, and opportunities to relate to teenagers from countries worldwide. 

Here in the Capital District, our Builders Club Administrator is Dru Bowman, a member of the Kiwanis Club of Peninsula at Oyster Point,  Newport News.   If you have questions about the Builders Club program, please contact Matthew at
