A community service organization dedicated to helping kids in the local community.  There are over 3800 clubs worldwide, most in the United States and Canada.

We offer college scholarship contests such as: Communication Contest for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing, Essay Contest and an Oratorical Contest.

We have recognition of community leaders who are helping all of us such as: Respect for Law and Youth Appreciation Breakfast.

We provide personal growth programs and speakers at weekly meetings and at our rotating location quarterly conventions.
