Joining is simple.

As a high school student, you’re just beginning to find your place in the world. If you’re looking for a place where you can make a difference in the lives of others and in your own, you belong in Key Club. If you’re looking for a place to meet lifelong friends, you belong in Key Club. If you’re looking for a place to do more than you ever thought you could, you belong in Key Club. If you love serving others, you belong in Key Club.

Each high school navigates the membership process differently. Talk to your peers, ask around, or attend your club fair. All of these are great places to start your journey into Key Club. If none of those options work, contact your guidance counselor or an administrator in your high school who can connect you with the Key Club student leaders.

In addition, districts are divided into divisions and each division is led by a lieutenant governor, who also serves on the district board.

What about international positions?

Key Club is led at the international level by a student board of trustees, representing many districts. Key Club International offices include president, vice president and 11 trustees. Each trustee is responsible for liaising between the Key Club International board and at least two Key Club districts. The Key Club International Board and all district governors comprise the international council.
