Pediatric Trauma

Pediatric Trauma remains the leading cause of death and injury among children ages 14 and under in the United States. The Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation’s Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) works to reduce the number of children in our three-state District who are killed or injured by trauma, ensuring all children live happy, healthy and safe lives.

Taking a holistic approach to meet our mission, we work to prevent pediatric trauma in three ways:
1. We provide community outreach, education and materials to children and families living in the communities we share;
2. We collaborate with a select group of children’s hospitals to identify projects the Kiwanis family can undertake to address the issue of Pediatric Trauma; and
3. We improve the outcomes for children who experience pediatric trauma by providing grants to our partner hospitals, which enable them to reach out to their communities with educational materials, safety equipment and information on childhood trauma prevention; offer advanced pediatric training for doctors, nurses and first responders; and purchase specialized pediatric medical equipment.

Population(s) Served

Each year, we empower hundreds of youth to become our future leaders. Our Service Leadership Program members attend multiple trainings throughout the year to help support their leadership development and training. The Governors, Lt. Governors and appointed board members of our Service Leadership Programs (Circle K, Key Club and KIWIN’S) work with committed Kiwanians to gain the skills to run meetings, organize community service projects, and plan fundraising events. These are invaluable skills that assist our members through their years of service and beyond.

Many of these members come from low-income families. Our leadership trainings are fully-funded and include room & board and meals for each participant, meaning that all our youth can participate, regardless of their family's financial situation.

Population(s) Served

In 1980, District Governor Kenneth C. Forror, M.D., established a scholarship fund to assist students that are members of Service Leadership Programs (SLP) in our California-Nevada-Hawaii District of Kiwanis. Today, we continue to provide financial assistance to members of Circle K, Key Club, and KIWIN’S in our three-state district as they pursue their education at a college, university, or trade school.

Financial assistance is given to a selected number of SLP students who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, service to their school and community, and academic ability, and have been active members of their SLP program. To qualify for a scholarship, students must plan to continue their education by attending a college or university, or by attending a trade or vocational school. We are pleased to award approximately $75,000 – $110,000 in scholarships each year.
