Key Club is for young people who want to assure positive futures for themselves and others by working together to fulfill the needs of their schools and communities through volunteer service.
Key Club promotes the ideals of voluntary service to others and provides high school students with opportunities for leadership development. Members are encouraged to perform at least 50 hours of service each year.
Some of the projects that the Alexandria Area High School Key Club participates in during the year include the American Red Cross blood drive (fall and spring), Jingle Bells, highway clean-up (fall and spring), Christmas caroling at Knute Nelson, Random Acts of Kindness, music concerts, the Angel Tree Project, Salvation Army bell ringing and fundraising.
With more than 200,000 Key Club members in 4,500 high schools in 18 countries, Key Club is the world’s largest high school service organization. Members contribute 8.7 million service hours each year.
