Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership program for today's young leaders. This life-changing event focuses on service leadership as the first, most meaningful leadership-development experience. A Key Leader will learn the most important lesson of leadership—it comes from helping others succeed.
Key Leader teaches high school students what it means to be a youth leader in three different communities: the local community; the state and national community; and the global community.
Participants begin by attending a Key Leader conference, which is a weekend retreat. Large and small group workshops, discussions and team-building activities take place over the course of the weekend. Students have opportunities to learn leadership skills that will help them to change their schools, communities, and world for the better. While exploring leadership in a whole new way, participants will make amazing new friends and have experiences they will never forget. Positive, ongoing interaction with other Key Leader graduates offers continuing reinforcement, encouragement and growth of leadership skills.
Our mission is to provide a life-changing experience that inspires young people to achieve their personal best through Service Leadership.
Management and administration of Key Leader is changing. Local committees continue to organize the events—market and recruit and train volunteers. As of January 2018 local Kiwanis clubs contract the program from Kiwanis International and directly with the camps.
