Thank you for taking the time to help your community!
Key Club is the largest service leadership organization in the world. Key Club empowers its quarter million youth members to lead and serve in almost 5,000 clubs in 24 nations. Providing more than 12 million service hours annually, Key Club proves to be an ever-popular high school organization for teenagers seeking to cultivate leadership skills, develop friendships, and perform service in their communities. Since the first Key Club at Sacramento High School (California) in 1925, Key Club members demonstrate a passion for helping others and develop excellent leadership skills they carry with them for a lifetime.
STUDENT-LED Key Club 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.
INCLUSIVENESS The requirements for Key Club membership are set forth in the Bylaws of Key Club International. Specifically, Key Club membership is open to any student who desires to become a leader in his/her school and community and wishes to
provide service to others.
LEADERSHIP Every Key Club elects its own officers annually. A president, one or more vice presidents, a secretary, a treasurer, and an editor are elected each year. The club is organized into committees, which are responsible for planning and implementing the clubâ€™s service projects, social activities, and leadership development. To be successful, it is important the every Key Club member find a role in the club.
CARING: OUR WAY OF LIFE Each Key Club has the autonomy to select and plan its own service projects. However, members unite to make an international impact with Key Club International are UNICEF, Read & Lead, March of Dimes, and Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network. The Key Club Service Initiative invites members to serve children in an educational hands-on approach and changes every two years to meet the needs of children.
Mission An international, student-led organization providing its members with opportunities to perform service, build character, and develop leadership.
Past Events! Thanks to those who helped out!:3 Swim Meet9/16/13& 9/24/13 Key clubbers decorated posters and cheered on our fellow Apollo hawk swimmers in their meet. Key Clubber Aisha Raji shared her feelings on the meet. “It was fun and HOT ,” She states. “But we had a lot of water bottles at least which was great!” Nicole Dunlap also enjoyed the meet as well. “I really had fun making posters and cheering!” This September swim meet sure was a SPLASH of fun in service!

Members have been lining up to go spend time with the best buddies students! They sure had a good time! This month we provided many awesome activities! “We used toilet paper rolls and made race cars,” Joanne Nyguyen shared. ”We raced and then we colored and made snacks. It was enjoyable to bond with them.” IT is so riveting to know you are serving and building relationships at the same time.

Commbase is an event where we bond with students with disabilities on campus. President of Best Buddies, Joanna Salis, shares information on these amazing Apollo hawks and how to communicate with them by using eye contact and making them feel welcomed by smiling. “These students look up to us and think of us as the ‘Big Kids,’ even though they are our age, “ she states. “It is essential to watch what we say around them because we are role models to them.” Joanna also explains the importance of not referring to them to their disabilities but empower them with their unique traits as individuals. Using the “R” word is unacceptable, as well. “No Slurs or defensive terms either,” President Michel asserts. This is a great bonding experience and a great way to show appreciation and equality to all those who attend Apollo. Don’t miss such a wonderful opportunity! Sign up!
