|Description:||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.
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 National Exchange Club was organized in Toledo, Ohio in 1917.
Exchange Clubs sponsor a wide variety of activities primarily focused around the Exchange Program of Service, which includes Child Abuse Prevention, community service, youth and Americanism. Improving communities, helping the disadvantaged and encouraging good American citizenship is what Exchange is all about. Collectively, Exchange Clubs donate millions of dollars and countless hours of volunteer service to better their communities each year. Exchange also helps members develop personal and professional leadership skills, while having fun, and meeting new people.
Exchange adopted child abuse prevention as its national project in 1979. Today, nearly 120 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. More than 250,000 children and 150,000 families have benefited from Exchange's efforts.

|Mission:||THE EXCHANGE CLUB COVENANT OF SERVICE
(Adopted as the philosophy which characterizes an Exchangite)
Accepting the divine privilege of single and collective responsibility as life's noblest gift, I covenant with my fellow Exchangites:
To consecrate my best energies to the uplifting of Social, Religious, Political and Business ideals.
To discharge the debt I owe to those of high and low estate who have served and sacrificed that the heritage of American citizenship might be mine.
To honor and respect law, to serve my fellow men, and to uphold the ideals and institutions of my Country.
To implant the life-giving, society-building spirit of Service and Comradeship in my social and business relationships.
To serve in Unity with those seeking better conditions, better understandings, and greater opportunities for all.
