Connecticut District Exchange Club
Provides members with opportunities to serve their communities, develop leadership skills and interact with other like-minded business and professional persons.
Exchange, America's Service Club, is a group of men and women working together to make our communities better places to live through programs of service in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Activities and its national project, the Prevention of Child Abuse.
"Unity for Service"
The National Exchange Club
Exchange is made up of nearly 800 clubs with more than 25,000 members across the United States and Puerto Rico who sponsor a variety of activities to improve their communities. The first Exchange Club was formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1911. The organization's goal is to become the premier service club in America by igniting the spirit of community service throughout the nation.
Exchange Program of Service
Exchange Clubs sponsor a wide variety of activities primarily focused around Child Abuse Prevention, community service, youth and Americanism. Collectively, Exchange Clubs donate millions of dollars and countless hours of volunteer service to better their communities each year.
The National Exchange Club Foundation
Exchange adopted child abuse prevention as its national project in 1979, establishing the Toledo-based National Exchange Club Foundation. Today, nearly 100 Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention Centers have been established across the country. The centers utilize professionally trained parent aides who work directly with families in need, teaching them positive parenting techniques. More than 140,000 children and 100,000 families have benefited from Exchange's efforts.
We hope these pages will give you a thorough oversight of what Exchange does for both our communities and our members. For those of you who are members of Exchange, we offer this site as a resource for activities and news from across the District.
