General Info 

Key Club is a service organization devoted to offering their time and efforts for a good cause. We are a student-led organization that provides members the opportunity to grow as an individual and ensure benefits as they continue to volunteer. Key Club International is the high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. 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.  The first Key Club formed in 1925 in Sacramento, California with 11 charter members. 

Gold vs. Navy Hours

As you may know, by dedicating 40 hours each year of your high school career to community service, you will be given a cord at graduation to commemorate your accomplishments.  However, these hours are only allowed to come from onsite projects in which you are physically giving your time and energy.  In order to ensure that you get credit for your donations and are able to log your onsite hours, we created a distinction between two different types of hours that will allow you to receive all the credit you deserve.  Gold hours will only count toward your Key Club semester requirements and Navy hours will count toward the service cord in addition to your semester requirements.  This means that Navy hours are the only hours you are allowed to log onto x2Vol.

Hour Requirements

Once you pay dues you are required to have a minimum of 15 service hours per semester. All hours must be key club sponsored hours which means we will not accept hours from outside affiliations.  If you fail to meet the semester requirements you will be put on probation and forced to make up the remaining hours in the following semester.  

Meeting Expectations

All meetings are mandatory, Students may not miss 2 consecutive meetings without an approved excuse. There is so much info to get to everyone. We discuss projects & service opportunities in depth; you can't get all the info from a handout. Remember that you must attend all key club meetings.This is part of the key club bi-laws and part of our constitution that you agreed to when you joined. You are earning service hours for meetings and that's one of the requirements to be an active key club member & to be able to put key club on college applications. 

Stay Committed

Failure to meet club requirements regarding attendance and service hours will result in a warning; members are strongly encouraged to meet all requirements of membership in order to remain in good standing. If a member should remain inactive after a warning has been administered, his/her name will be removed from the email list and membership roster, and he/she will no longer be a member of the club in the current school year. There will be no refund of dues if membership in Key Club is terminated due to failure to meet requirements of membership. If you have an excused absence, it needs to be prior approved and in writing. Please email: [email protected] to report an absence.
