Since its inception in 1925, members of Key Club International have provided countless hours of service to their homes, schools and communities.
Every Key Club has the authority to select its own service projects because usually there are many more service needs in a community than there are service clubs and agencies to meet them. However, all Key Clubs are asked to participate in the Major Emphasis: “Children: Their Future, Our Focus.”
Key Club’s Major Emphasis “Children: Their Future, Our Focus”
At Key Club International's first convention in 1946, the organization was given the responsibility of instituting a program that would bring together all Key Club's direct members' efforts and energies into an area that would truly make an International impact. This program still is followed today through the Major Emphasis: “Children: Their Future, Our Focus.”
To fulfill the mission of the Major Emphasis, Key Club International serves children in many ways. Members participate in the hands-on service initiative, currently The Eliminate Project, and fundraise for Key Club International’s partner organizations: Children’s Miracle Network, March of Dimes and UNICEF.
