Civitan Creed

I AM CIVITAN, as old as life,
as young as the rainbow, as endless as time.

MY HANDS do the work of the world
and reach out in service to others.

MY EARS hear the cry of children
and the call throughout the world
for peace, guidance, progress, and unity.

MY EYES search for others to join
in the fellowship and service of Civitan.

MY MOUTH utters the call to daily duty
and speaks prayers in every tongue.

MY MIND teaches me respect for law
and the flag of my country.

MY HEART beats for every friend,
bleeds for every injury to humanity,
and throbs with joy at every triumph of truth.

MY SOUL knows no fear but its own unworthiness.

MY HOPE is for a better world through Civitan.

MY MOTTO: Builders of good citizenship.

MY BELIEF: Do unto others as you would
have them do unto you.

MY PLEDGE: To practice the Golden Rule
and build upon it a better and nobler citizenship



Civitan Mission Statement

The mission of Civitan worldwide 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.

Purpose of a Civitan Club

Civitan’s purpose is to serve the community. This is done by fulfilling human needs that are not met by other organizations or by individual efforts. Individuals whose needs are best met through organized group action are prime candidates for Civitan service projects.  In all they do, Civitans seek experiences that provide life direction, character building, leadership development, and the satisfaction of helping others. As a result of this work, a Civitan typically experiences a heightened sense of self-esteem and accomplishment.

Meaning of the word Civitan

Civitan is a coined word that comes from the Latin word Civitas, which means citizenship.

Civitans are everyday citizens....

Civitans are everyday citizens, just like you and me, who come together in communities throughout the world to make life better for their neighbors. Family, friends, neighbors and co-workers meet at local Civitan clubs to socialize, learn and serve in their communities. Starting with just a single club, and a vision for helping others, Civitan has grown to over 40,000 members in 24 countries, including youth and college programs. Founded on the most basic moral and spiritual values, Civitans’ commitment to identify and address needs in their communities have set them apart from other social and service organizations.
