Key Club offers community service opportunities to students

April 5, 2016 | Madison North

Key Club is a student-run organization, meaning there is a student president and elected members who come together to hold the meetings. This international club holds a mandatory meeting the first Tuesday of every month to discuss important community service opportunities and make sure everyone is aware of upcoming activities. If considered necessary by the president, there are planned meetings throughout the month. The objective of Key Club is the development of initiative, leadership, and good citizenship.

During the meetings, members discuss what community service options are available and members do what they can to show up and participate in the activity. To continue in Key Club as an active member, each person must get at least five hours of community service each month.

The club is jointly sponsored by a local Kiwanis Club and Crestview High School. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time. This group of volunteers do what they can to support Key Club by sponsoring them for Key Club related activities.

Towards the end of the school year, CHS members attend a convention called District Convention. The primary purpose of this convention is to elect a new district board, but other things are covered here too. The students who attend are taught leadership qualities and learn more about how they can support and help Key Club expand and thrive. This trip is mainly sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, paying more than half of the cost for each student.
