Welcome to Lew-Port Builders Club
Service to Home, School, and Community
What is Builders Club?
Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school students, with more than 40,000 members worldwide. The first Builders Club was chartered in 1975. Today, there are more than 2,000 clubs in Aruba, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, Martinique, Netherlands Antilles, Philippines, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago, and the United States.
Builders Club is a student-led community service organization, which operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. Builders Club is sponsored by Kiwanis to provide young people of middle school age with the opportunity to help others, to serve their community and school, and to build a positive future for themselves.
Objectives of Builders Club
- To provide opportunities for working together in service to school and community.
