The National Exchange Club
The National Exchange Club is a network spanning the United States and Puerto Rico. The dynamic organization is comprised of more than 20,000 members and nearly 650 clubs, all striving together to fulfill Exchange's Mission - "Working together to make our communities better places to live."
Founded on March 27, 1911, in Detroit, Michigan, the organization is headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, and employs a staff of approximately 20 individuals dedicated to helping members and clubs achieve their goals.
The community-level clubs and National Headquarters support three Programs of Service - Americanism, Community Service and Youth Programs - as well as Exchange's National Project, the prevention of child abuse. These Programs of Service serve as categories to help clubs organzie the activities that benefit their communities.
Exchange's Core Values
Each member of Exchange upholds three core values - Family, Community and Country.
Commitment to Family is interpreted not only as one's own family, but those of all American families. Strengthening families, with a focus on youth, is addressed in many ways through Exchange's Programs of Service.
Commitment to the Community where an Exchangite resides is the focal point for each club's efforts. Exchange is unique, as clubs have the flexibility to structure projects targeting needs of their communities, rather than being tied to a certain cause.
Commitment to Country was born in the aftermath of World War II, a time of unquenchable patriotism. Exchangites are proud to join veterans and other civic groups in promoting Americanism as the rich blessing of democracy and freedom. Members also actively educate today's youth to cherish these values.
If you are looking for ways to devleop leadership skills and a network of contacts across the community and the country, Exchange is for you!
