We meet weekly at the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club at 1601 Bayside Drive, Corona del Mar, CA. Our Thursday meeting begins at 12:00 PM with a buffet lunch. At 1:00 PM the program begins. We conclude our meeting at 1:30 PM.
We would be happy to have you as a guest at one of our meetings and to see if membership in the Kiwanis Club of Newport Beach/Corona del Mar would be a fit for you.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis works to develop future generations of leaders. Every day, Kiwanians are revitalizing neighborhoods, organizing youth-sports programs, tutoring, building playgrounds, and performing countless other projects to help children and communities.
Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different—so each Kiwanis club is different.
No two Kiwanis clubs look exactly the same. Each member’s and community’s needs are different, and each club should look different. Some clubs are very traditional, with weekly meetings and a strong sense of history. Other clubs don’t meet at all, and instead hold meetings online and only come together for service projects. Newer clubs may follow the 3-2-1 concept: 3 hours of service, 2 hours of social activity and a 1-hour meeting each month. Clubs should reflect their communities and their members and should work to meet their needs. Flexibility is key to a successful club.
Kiwanis members don’t just do service—they have fun. Members make new friends by being part of a club where they attend meetings and participate in social events. Kiwanis clubs also provide excellent networking opportunities for professionals. Members meet new people from all over their region and the world through service projects, fundraising and by attending district and Kiwanis International conventions.
Kiwanis of Newport Beach/Corona del Mar is an organization of volunteers who come together to make our community a better place.
Community service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. World-wide members stage nearly 150,000 service projects and raise nearly US$100 million every year for communities, families and children.
