Builders Club is an international student-led organization providing middle school and junior high members with opportunities to perform service, build character and develop leadership.

The first Builders Club was chartered in 1975. Today, there are more than 1,600 clubs in Aruba, Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, Martinique, Netherlands Antilles, Philippines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United States.

The Builders Club Values are:

  • Character building: The ability to do the right thing, even when it might be the unpopular choice.
  • Leadership: The ability to listen, communicate, serve and guide others.
  • Inclusiveness: Accepting and welcoming differences in other people.
  • Caring: The act of being concerned about or interested in other people or situations.

The Gig Harbor Kiwanis Club sponsors the Key Peninsula Middle School Builders Club.  For more information, contact Mike Scholtens at 253-241-1705.
