Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership. The core values of Key Club International are leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness.
Key Club International is the high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. It is the oldest and largest service program for high school students with approximately 260,000 members in approximately 5,000 clubs. Key Club is represented in 31 countries. Key Club assists Kiwanis in carrying out its mission to serve the children of the world. High school student members of Key Club perform acts of service in their communities, such as cleaning up parks, collecting clothing and organizing food drives. They also learn leadership skills by running meetings, planning projects and holding elected leadership positions at the club, district and international levels.
Key Club International brings together all Key Club's members' efforts and energies into an area that makes an international impact through the Major Emphasis, "Children: Their Future, Our Focus.” The Major Emphasis unites Key Clubs under the banner of service that deals with the most important part of our community, our youth.
Each year, Key Club International teams up with its three partner organizations, March of Dimes, Children’s Miracle Network and UNICEF, for the fundraising element of the Major Emphasis. As you plan your club’s service programming for the year, keep these organizations in mind. Each Key Club is encouraged to participate with our partners as we join together to make a difference in the lives of children.Click here for more information!
