Youth Services & Young Children Priority One
Club members support and volunteer on projects based on their interests. They can also take an initiative to introduce a new project that contributes to our club's efforts.
A primary mission for our club is to provide community service that benefits youth. To facilitate that service effort, we have two focus programs, Youth Service for school age youth and Young Children Priority One for children age 5 and younger. Our club has long been one of Pasco School District's PEAK partners supporting Virgie Robinson Elementary .
The J&S Dreamland Express
The Horse Heaven Hills Kiwanis Foundation annually awards scholarships for graduating seniors in our sponsored high school Key Clubs at Southridge High School and Kamiakin High School
We also contribute funds for school supplies to selected local elementary schools and other programs in coordination with our affiliated Kiwanis Club of the Horse Heaven Hills.
Annually, our club offers a weeklong bicycle training camp where young people with a variety of disabilities can experience success and gain more independence as they learn to ride a 2-wheel bicycle.

J&S Dreamland Express is our club's signature project. It is a recreational "train" that brings joy to children and their families on weekend afternoons from May to September at Kennewick Columbia Park. The J&S is operated by our club members and the community volunteers, and assisted by the generosity of our community sponsors.
