Our Club is a newly chartered chapter of Civitan International. Civitans have been serving and improving local communities since 1917.
In the 1950’s, Civitan adopted a special emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities. Civitan was one of the major supporters of Special Olympics International, and thousands of Civitans still support these local events. The Hilton Head Civitan Club strives to motivate residents to participate in their local community. We try to be a civic, volunteer, service organization that caters to the demands of working individuals of all ages. We know there are people who want to help, but have a difficult time meshing their busy schedules with existing organizations. We have created a group that embraces the social aspects of island life with the relentless demands of our work and personal lives. We are seizing the opportunity to give back to our community through philanthropic projects.
