Key Club International is a service leadership organization for high school students. It is jointly sponsored by a local Kiwanis club composed of the leading businesses and professional people of the community.
Key Club International provides more than 12 million hours of service to homes, schools and communities each year. From building bridges, to collecting tons of food, to helping eliminate iodine deficiency disorder, Key Club International plays a vital role in serving the children of the world.
Every Key Club has the authority to select its own service projects. However, all Key Clubs are asked to participate in the Major Emphasis, which is “Children: Their Future, Our Focus.”
Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership.
We are caring and competent servant leaders transforming communities worldwide.
The core values of Key Club International are leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness.
I pledge, on my honor, to uphold the Objects of Key Club International; to build my home, school and community; to serve my nation and God; and combat all forces which tend to undermine these institutions.
