Kiwanis Club of Tampa
The Kiwanis Club of Tampa supports the Terrific Kids program, which promotes character development, self-esteem and perseverance. Students in elementary schools work with their teachers to establish goals to improve behavior, peer relationships, attendance or schoolwork and to reach their goal during a specific time. Students that meet their goals are considered Terrific (Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable).
Our club sponsors the program in seven elementary schools: Dunbar, Foster, Clair-Mel, Just, B.T. Washington, Lockhart Magnet and Edison. The program rewards character development and is very popular with guidance counselors. Once a month, students who meet their goals get recognized as Terrific Kids. Our club provides banners, bumper stickers, Kiwanis stickers, cups and pencils, and a member speaks to the kids and parents and hands out the awards.
