Key Leader by Kiwanis is a weekend leadership program for high school and graduating 8th Grade students. Our mission is to inspire young people to achieve their personal best through service leadership.

Interested in sponsoring a Key Leader weekend in your area? 

The benefits offered through Key Leader are unique in that they focus on service leadership, social-emotional skills, and can be sustained through student participation in Kiwanis service organizations such as high school Key Clubs. 

Beyond those personal benefits, Key Leader programs help students understand their fit in their broader communities, and result in more caring, compassionate citizens. Hosting a Key Leader program is a wonderful way to invest in your high school or local community.
