What is the 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.  As members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves while they build their schools and communities.

How did the 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".

Thunderbird HS Key Club:

Key Club Motto:  Caring – Our Way of Life

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.
Everyone is welcome!


Some of our past activities include organizing the food drive for "St. Mary's Food Bank", collecting personal care items for "UMOM Day Center", Participating in "Love Our Schools Day" at Mountain Sky Jr. High, preparing and serving meals for the homeless at "Andre House Hospitality Center", Assisting special needs students during "Kid's Day at the Fair", and participating in the 
annual holiday "Giving Tree".
