Key Club is an international student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to perform service, build character, and develop leadership. With over 260,000 members from approximately 5,000 clubs in over 30 countries, the organization is unique because a local Kiwanis club, composed of the leading business and professional people of the community, sponsors a local Key Club. In addition, Key Club not only functions on a local level, but also on a district (state) and international level as well. The Pennsylvania District, chartered in 1947, has over 12,000 members with over 200 clubs.
