Help your community

Kinsmen, Kinette, and Kin clubs are the country’s largest all-Canadian service groups made up of active community volunteers. Members work together to serve their communities’ greatest needs by promoting service, fellowship, family values, and national pride. They support cystic fibrosis (CF) research and fund local projects, like playgrounds and ice rinks, across the country. So, if you’d like to give something back to your community, joining a Kinsmen, Kinette, or Kin club is the perfect answer.

Develop personally

It’s very satisfying to be a member of the Kin organization. You’ll be proud of the work you do for others and pleased with the personal benefits that result. You may become a better leader or more of a team player. You’ll find yourself more relaxed in dealing with groups; your presentation skills will improve, and you’ll become a better public speaker. Plus, you’ll have a chance to network with people from a wide variety of businesses.


Make life-long friendships

Kinsmen and Kinettes come from all walks of life, so you’ll enjoy being part of a diverse and spirited group. And, like most members, you’ll make lifetime friendships that extend far beyond your own club.

Have a whole lot of fun

Although the Kin organization dates back 88 years, there’s nothing old-fashioned about what Kinsmen and Kinettes do. Activities and events are lively, interesting and fun. Fundraising projects get you into the community, and they’re always rewarding and entertaining. So join a Kinsmen, Kinette, or Kin club today, and brighten the horizon – for yourself and your community.
