Key Club International is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. The first Key Club met at Sacramento High School in California in 1925. 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 became known as Key Club. Now Key Club has approximately 260,000 members in approximately 5,000 clubs. Key Club is represented internationally in 31 countries.
Just to get an idea of the vastness of Key Club, here is the breakdown:
There are 33 Districts in Key Club International. There are 28 Divisions in the New York District Key Club. There are 12 School Key Clubs in Division 6.
The goal that Lieutenant Governor Shermeen Khan has for this year is to have the clubs of this division unite towards making more events be possible with high club involvements. The plan is to achieve as much involvement from each club as possible and to get as many people to attend service project events.
The Key Clubs in Division 6 include:
Bethpage Student Civic Division Avenue High School East Meadow High School Elmont Memorial High School Garden City High School General Douglas MacArthur High School Gerald R. Claps Career & Technology Center Island Trees High School Sacred Heart Academy Uniondale High School W. Tresper Clarke High School West Hempstead High School
