The skills I learned at Key Leader, I have applied to every aspect of my life, from being a good student at school, to keeping my integrity when my friends choose otherwise. But above all, after Key Leader, I am a true leader. One that people can look up to and seek out for advice."

What Is Key Club?

The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Kiwanis International Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the decades, they have remained unchanged.

  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of   life. 

  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships. 

  • To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards. 

  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship. 

  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities. 

  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.

Kiwanis clubs, located in 80 nations, help their communities in countless ways. Each community’s needs are different—so each Kiwanis club is different. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things happen.
