Start a club

You're passionate about starting a club. Now what? The first step: Get people involved! Key Clubs are chartered in partnership with a Kiwanis club and a school or community-based organization serving high school students. (A school-based club can form without a Kiwanis sponsor, if one is not available.)

Get people involved!

Use the “In Your Community” brochure to present your idea for a new club. The brochure is available at no cost from the Key Club Store. It’s a great resource for making a fantastic first impression on potential Kiwanis advisors, faculty advisors, school administrators and sponsors. Remember, you can contact Key Club International for help at any point in the club building process.

The online toolkit also includes valuable resources for planning service projects, training club officers and other tools to help make your club succeed! For more information, contact Key Club.

Reactivate your club!

If your club chartered a few years back, but hasn't paid member fees for a year or two, consider reactivating the club with Key Club International. Download, complete and mail the following Petition for Reactivation Form with the requested club fees to Key Club International. .
