Key Club is a service organization for high school students, which operates under school regulations and draws its members from the student body. The club is a unique organization because it is sponsored by a local Kiwanis club, composed of the leading business and professional people of the community. Key Club’s objective is the development of initiative, leadership ability, and good citizenship practices. It functions not only on a local level, but on a district and international level as well. This highly developed structure provides programs, literature, and the opportunity for students to relate to other teenagers from across the globe. Key Club is the largest service organization of its kind with over 135,000 members from approximately 3,900 clubs.
 
 
"Everybody can be GREAT.  Because anybody can SERVE.  
You don't have to have a college degree to SERVE
.  
You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to SERVE
.  
You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle to SERVE
.  
You don't have to know Einstein's Theory of Relativity to SERVE
.  
You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to SERVE
.  You only need a HEART full of GRACE.  A SOUL generated by LOVE
."

-Martin Luther King, Jr.
 

Believing that I was born for the service of mankind, and regarding the care of the commonwealth as a kind of common property which, like the air and the water, belongs to everybody, I set myself to consider in what way mankind might be best served, and what service I was my-self best fitted by nature to perform.

 
 

"Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can."
