Sign Up Today to be a Member of the Glenwood Key Club!

Key Club has approximately 270,000 members in roughly 5,000 clubs, and is represented in 38 nations! Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. It is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through service to others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.

Core Values:

Leadership, Character Building, Caring, Inclusiveness

To be a member in good standing, we ask that you get involved in your community and find ways to volunteer. Due to the pandemic, we are only requiring 2 hours a month rather than 4, and we have reduced dues to $15 rather than $25. Dues are required by clubs because they are required by Key Club International. Members in good standing are allowed to list Key Club membership on their college resume! Special recognition at graduation is available for seniors!

Key Club is also a leadership-development club. There are opportunities to

attend leadership training, rallies, conferences, etc., as well as opportunities to manage (or co-manage) service projects and chair committees. In addition, you could be a club officer or run for a district-level or even International office!! There are many many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others. We challenge students who love to give, to volunteer, to serve others to join Key Club, because “Caring is our Way of Life”.

Will you get the 100 hours of service award?
