Key Clubs are established in a high school or equivalent institution. A community-based club also may be chartered. Elected officers can include president, one or more vice presidents, secretary, treasurer, editor and one director from each class.
The Sierra Madre Kiwanis Key Club Arcadia’s Club currently has about 200 members and participates in a variety of community service projects, including volunteering at local events in Sierra Madre.
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.
Members around the world are learning how to lead and stand for what’s right through service and volunteerism. In partnership with their local Kiwanis club, high school students are making a positive impact as they serve others in their schools and communities.
The core values are leadership, character building, caring, and inclusiveness. Members the world over in live by the Key Club Pledge: “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.”
