Homecoming Campaign 2021

District Administrators

The challenge. During the past two school years, a significant number of our Key Clubs declared that they were inactive due to the pandemic. Others simply went inactive. Most schools will be back on a more normal schedule this fall, and we want to reach out to all those inactive Key Clubs. Our efforts are titled: HOMECOMING 2021.  

The approach. Those Key Clubs will be contacted in several ways:  

  • The process will begin with the leaders of Kiwanis clubs that sponsor these Key Clubs. The president-elect of each Kiwanis club that sponsors an inactive Key Club will be contacted by direct mail and email from Key Club International. Some of them will also receive a phone call.  
  • The Kiwanis club president-elect will be asked to ensure that their club is an active supporter of the Key Club and provides an active Kiwanis advisor.  
  • The Kiwanis advisor, with the help of the Kiwanis club president-elect, will be asked to reach out to the school administration and the faculty advisor of the Key Club.  

Once the school has approved the Key Club’s operation for this school year, update the club’s roster and status at Member Update Center. If help is needed, call Kiwanis International— +1-317-875-8755 or 1-800-KIWANIS ext 411 (U.S. and Canada) —to update the club roster 

No reactivation fee is charged if the Key Club has gone to inactive status in the last two years. To qualify for this fee forgiveness, the club needs to contact Kiwanis International no later than December 31, 2021.  

The request. Each district administrator is asked to devise a contact plan for their inactive clubs. The district administrators can find a link to the current list of inactive clubs and inactive-due-to-pandemic clubs in the DA Google Drive. If you would like another copy of this list, please email . The student leaders will receive materials to help energize all clubs in each district.  

Resource locator. Resources are located at keyclub.org/homecoming. The information is camera-ready, and printed pieces are available and can be shared as needed in each district. Ideally, each district and division newsletter — as well as each district website — will carry information on Homecoming 2021.
