Key Club International is introducing the Global Leadership Certificate pilot program for members. Sign up, log in and test our newest training program.

Through spring 2021, we are creating and refining a training platform and curriculum. Be among the first Key Club members to test the Global Leadership Certificate program. Through videos, assessments, resources and activities, you’ll learn how to get your voice heard and your community’s concerns met.

Pilot courses include:

  • Voting: Our civic responsibility. This course teaches the ins and outs of voting. The larger skill set dives into the basics of government and community leadership.

  • Strategic vs. tactical leadership. This course will help you understand the importance of strategy. The larger skill set will teach you how to create a strategic plan and how to use strategy to inspire others.

  • Passions in practice.  This course focuses on exploring and applying personal passions to volunteer opportunities and specific causes. In the larger skill set, you will learn how to integrate your passions into a volunteer role.


The courses are based on Key Club’s core values of fellowship, leadership and service. You’ll learn traditional skills as well as in-demand soft skills such as emotional intelligence, empathy, resiliency and more. This program won’t just help you stand out as a candidate for colleges/grad school, trade schools or employers — it will help you become a stronger leader and changemaker.
