  • What is the structure of Key Club?
    Key Club operates with a clear hierarchical structure comprising four main levels. At the top is Key Club International, the governing body that sets policies, programs, and goals for the organization on a global scale. This level oversees international service initiatives and is led by a Board of Trustees comprised of elected Key Club members representing various regions. Moving down, the district level consists of geographical divisions housing multiple clubs. Each district has its own elected student leadership team responsible for supporting and guiding individual clubs within their region, organizing events, and facilitating collaboration among clubs. Below the district level is the division level, where a division comprises several Key Clubs in a more localized area. Division leaders, often appointed or elected, coordinate efforts among clubs, organize division-wide activities, and provide support to club officers. Finally, at the club level, individual Key Clubs operate within schools or communities, led by their own set of student officers who plan and execute service projects while being supported by club advisors, usually school faculty or staff. This hierarchical setup ensures effective leadership, fosters resource-sharing, and advances Key Club's mission of service, leadership development, and community engagement.
