Horses for handicapped!
The Kiwanis Club of Seminole is proud to support Horses For Handicapped, a private non-profit program for the purpose of promoting and teaching therapeutic horseback riding for the handicapped.
This is accomplished with the help of parents, professionals, and volunteers from every walk of life.
Our Scholarship Committee works closely with the Pinellas Education Foundation to award several thousand dollars in College Scholarship every year to graduating high school students in our community.
To date we have given more than $300,000 in scholarships to Pinellas county students who have gone to achieve their dreams.
Our Young Children Priority One (YCPO) Committee makes cloth dolls that are given to local children’s hospitals.
The children can use them to draw a friend or perhaps as a tool to discuss what medical process they are going through and to describe any pain or symptoms.
Likewise, the Doctor can use it to describe what he is going to do to the child.
This small gesture goes a long way to make a child that’s going through a scary experience at a hospital a bit more comfortable.
This committee can be found working hard with children at Bauder Elementary School.
The Kiwanis K Kids group is where elementary-aged kids learn leadership and responsibility to their community.
We sponsor a Kiwanis Builders Club at Seminole Middle School.
This club is designed to demonstrate leadership skills to middle school students that have expressed an interest in being future leaders in our community.
We sponsor the Key Club at Seminole High School.
The high-school students in this active service organization perform many service projects throughout our community.
Plus, they are very instrumental in the success of many of our club’s projects by providing youthful energy and manpower.
We are proud of their efforts and enjoy the different perspective they bring to helping our community.
Every Child A Swimmer
With our community being surrounded by water and many homes having backyard pools and ponds, it’s crucial that children learn how to swim.
This program is held once a year for about 3 weeks and provides basic swimming skills and water safety for non-swimmers in the 5 to 11 age range.
