"Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs are established in elementary schools (K-Kids), middle schools (Builders Club), and in high schools (Key Clubs and AKtion Club)," Rick Anglickis, scholarship chairman for the club, said.

"'Growable' scholarship winners each have volunteered a minimum of 100 community service hours during the school year. We hope to have clubs available in every Lehigh Acres of school by 2015," he said. "The only thing holding us back is getting enough Kiwanis Advisers and Faculty Sponsor's which are required by Kiwanis International."
