  3. Evangel Christian School is honored to be granted a Key Club Chapter by Kiwanis International. Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.

  4. Today, Key Club exists on more than 5,000 high school campuses, primarily in the United States and Canada. Growth efforts, however, have taken the Key Club experience internationally to Canada, the Caribbean nations, Central and South America, and most recently to Asia and Australia.

  5. Key Club International is an organization of individual Key Clubs and is funded by nominal dues paid by every member. Its officers are high school leaders elected by the members at district and International conventions. The organization offers a wide range of opportunities to its members:

  6. -Leadership development

  7. -Vocational guidance

  8. -College scholarships

  9. -Subscription to the KEYNOTER magazine

  10. -Service-learning

  11. -Personal enrichment

  12. -Value-added member benefit programs

  13. -Liability insurance coverage

  14. Originally, Key Club adopted as its motto, “We Build,” the same motto as its parent organization, Kiwanis International. In 1976, the organization opted to change its motto to “Caring – Our Way of Life” because these words more clearly conveyed members’ reasons for helping others.
