“More than anything, people living with disabilities want to be treated like everybody else. They want to have close friendships and feel connected. They want to get out and give back. Aktion Club inspires them to take on leadership roles—to play a part and do things that really make a difference.”
The Sheboygan Aktion Club was created in April 2014 at RCS Empowers and is sponsored by the Greater Sheboygan and Sheboygan Falls Kiwanis Clubs. This member driven group of adults with disabilities is passionate about providing ways to “give back” to their community. They conduct fundraisers, perform service projects, build leadership abilities, and gain visibility and respect for the positive impact they create in their own lives and the lives of others.
The Sheboygan Aktion Club is one of over 12,000+ members world-wide. Each local club is run independently by their members, but RCS advisors and sponsors help facilitate club endeavors. Members hold leadership roles and guide decisions for future club activities and projects.
The Sheboygan Aktion Club meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month from 3-4:30 pm.
