We are a community service organization.
Civitan International's mission is to build good citizenship by providing a volunteer organization of clubs dedicated to serving individual and community needs with an emphasis on
helping people with developmental disabilities.
We Are Civitan!
A Civitan is someone who has a service heart - someone who wants to serve the community, someone who wants to help others.

Have you heard about the Servant's Heart Awards?
This new community initiative introduced by Civitan International is designed to help your club or district recognize the unsung heroes in your community serving people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
Celebrating Inclusive Clubs
In 1956, Civitan officially dedicated itself to the cause of serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The decision transformed the mission of the organization and inspired service to the Special Olympics, The Children’s Miracle Network, and ultimately the creation of the Civitan International Research Center. Inclusive clubs have become an integral part of the larger Civitan organization and their dedication to fellowship and service should be an inspiration for members everywhere.
