Valley Stream Memorial Junior High School added a new program to its catalog on March 16 with the chartering of its Kiwanis Builders Club.
Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Valley Stream, Memorial’s Builders Club empowers its members to lead and serve by cultivating leadership skills, developing friendships and performing community service. Builders Club members have a passion for helping others and gain leadership skills that they will carry with them for a lifetime.

Following their installation, members of Valley Stream South High School’s Kiwanis Key Club, including Key Club Division 7 Lt. Governor Steven Huang, met with the Builders Club members to answer questions and share their experiences with the club.
