About Key Club

soaring above the rest, ’cause we’re the best


Key Club

Key Club International is the high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International. Key Club assists Kiwanis in carrying out its mission to serve the children of the world. High school student members of Key Club perform acts of service in their communities, such as cleaning up parks, collecting clothing and organizing food drives. They also learn leadership skills by running meetings, planning projects and holding elected leadership positions at the club, district and international levels.


Pacific Northwest District

"It's raining, it's pouring, and PNW is soaring above the rest, 'cause we're the best, Pacific Northwest!"


In the midst of serene nature and fluctuating weather conditions lies the great Pacific Northwest District. The Pacific Northwest is geographically the largest district of Key Club International. Since the Anacortes High School Key Club was chartered in 1944, Pacific Northwest District Key Clubs have been transforming communities in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and the Panhandle of Idaho.  The Pacific Northwest encompasses nearly 1.8 million square miles and includes over 300 clubs that operate under 41 divisions. Through rain or shine, snow or hail, Key Clubbers in the Pacific Northwest dedicate countless hours to their communities and internationally, and are always Proud 'N' Willing to serve!

District Project:

The 2022-2023 Pacific Northwest Key Club District Project is the Help End Hunger initiative, chosen by District Governor Alice Lee and approved by the 2021-2022 District Board. This initiative goes beyond being a project; it’s a movement. Our goal for this District Project is to provide Key Clubbers and Kiwanians with the resources, knowledge, and inspiration to make an impact in their local communities to help end hunger. Since the District Project isn’t partnering with one specific organization, every Key Clubber has the opportunity to directly impact their own community.
