Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
Our club has one of the youngest memberships and is one of the most active Kiwanis clubs in the nation. We serve the North Lake Tahoe area including communities of Truckee, Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Incline Village and the areas between. Lake Tahoe is located on the California-Nevada border within the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. These communities are interspersed with small enclaves of residential housing that are 80% second homes.
Tourism is the major component of the local economy. Outdoor recreation opportunities abound, including ski areas, hiking trails, bike ways, beaches and Lake Tahoe. The area is populated with 10,000 year-round residents. However, the peak population can reach 50,000 during popular vacation periods.
