Activities: Key Club

At Thunderbird High School, we like to think of the word "Key" in Key Club as an acronym that stands for "Kiwanis Empowering Youth".  This is a club for high school students who wish to volunteer in their community and their school. It’s a great way to make new friends and develop leadership skills. We are an active club with involved students who want to make a difference. 

Some of our past activities include organizing the food drive and personal care items drive, volunteering at the Desert Mission Food Bank, preparing and serving meals at Andre House, volunteering at Kid's Day at the Fair, and participating in the annual Adopt-a-Family.  Everyone is welcome!

Motto:  Caring–Our Way of Life

What is Key Club?

Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. It is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through service to others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.

How did Key Club get its name?

In 1925, California State Commissioner of Schools Albert C. Olney and vocational education teacher
Frank C. Vincent worked to establish the first Key Club at Sacramento High School in California. This club was comprised of the key boys in the school, willing to serve the school in any way possible and to create better school spirit. Thus, the club was dubbed Key Club.
