Socialize, learn and help change the world.
Since 1917, Civitan International has been dedicated to making the world a better place by establishing local volunteer service clubs to bring people together to help the community. By utilizing a variety of fundraising efforts, programs and hands-on projects in the community, club members are achieving tangible, life-altering results benefiting those who need it most.
Regardless of your passion there is a Civitan club for you. For those who want to help youth, Civitans run after-school programs, sponsor youth sports teams, and hold joint service projects. Civitans also work to see that people with physical disabilities have the opportunities they deserve. Many clubs construct wheelchair ramps, loan out assistive devices, and fund accessible playground equipment for children of all abilities. In support of local veterans and first responders, Civitans organize special events such as concerts and host public officials as guest speakers. Civitans also take great pride in beautifying and caring for their communities. Many clubs adopt highways, clean up local parks, and educate local youth on the importance of caring for the world around them.
Besides the satisfaction of making a lasting impact in your community, there are many benefits to being a Civitan club member. Civitan offers fun volunteer opportunities for nearly every schedule and level of commitment. In addition, there are excellent leadership and networking opportunities. Officers can take part in leadership training, and everyday Civitans hold office at the local, regional and even international levels! Best of all, you have the opportunity to connect with active, interesting, and dedicated people like yourself.
