Mission Statement - 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.

The National Exchange Club - Exchange is made up of nearly 650 clubs with some 19,000 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, Mich., in 1911. The National Exchange Club was organized in Toledo, Ohio, in 1917. The organization's goal is to become the premier service club in America by igniting the spirit of community service throughout the nation.

Exchange Program of Service
- 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.

The National Exchange Club Foundation for the Prevention of Child Abuse
- Exchange adopted child abuse prevention as its national project in 1979, establishing the Toledo-based National Exchange Club Foundation for the Prevention of Child Abuse. Today, some 100 Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention Centers have been established across the country. The centers utilize professionally trained parent aides who work directly with abusing families, teaching them positive parenting techniques. More than 190,000 children and 150,000 families have benefited from Exchange's efforts.
