Service Projects


Golden K Kiwanis-Columbia has had a strong history with Young Children Priority One projects since early in 2000, giving service to many local child care centers. Readers (members and non-members) have read regularly to an average of 327 preschool children each month, reading to over 57,000 children in 15 years, and the reading continues.  Over the last 15 years nearly 70,000 books were distributed in Columbia to Title One Schools, Head Start and other agencies in Boone County, including the child care centers. 

A new focus was begun during 2016 to concentrate on a Kiwanis International Service Project about the early development of children’s brains with examples of how important the first 1,000 days of a baby’s life can be.  Members have distributed over 1,000 copies of “Your Baby’s Brain” in Columbia. This trifold brochure is part of a larger Service Bulletin from Kiwanis International, “A service project for Young Children Priority One: Brain Development, PO #25”. 

When it became apparent that a Spanish version of this tri-fold brochure could reach additional mothers and children, the Golden K Kiwanis-Columbia commissioned Kate Brown to create a Spanish translation. We hope that International will accept and make available this translated brochure to other Districts and Clubs Internationally.
