Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.
Today, Key Club exists on more than 5,000 high school campuses, primarily in the United States and Canada. Growth efforts, however, have taken the Key Club experience internationally to Canada, the Caribbean nations, Central and South America, and most recently to Asia and Australia.
Key Club International is an organization of individual Key Clubs and is funded by nominal dues paid by every member. Its officers are high school leaders elected by the members at district and International conventions. The organization offers a wide range of opportunities to its members:
Subscription to the Key Club magazine
Value-added member benefit programs
Liability insurance coverage
Originally, Key Club adopted as its motto, “We Build,” the same motto as its parent organization, Kiwanis International. In 1976, the organization opted to change its motto to Caring Our Way of Life” because these words more clearly conveyed members reasons for helping others.
These are the big three events that Key Club Members are required to serve:
2018 Kiwanis Spalding County Fair - October 5 - 13, 2018
2018 Salvation Army Bell Ringing - December 15, 2018
