Caring–Our Way of Life

Key Club
is an international student-led organization which provides members with opportunities to serve,  build character and develop leadership.

Key Clubs are made up of devoted high school students who are committed to serving their community and school.



The objectives of the clubs, as stated by Kiwanis International are:

  • To develop initiative and leadership.
  • To provide experience in living and working together.
  • To serve the school and community.
  • To cooperate with the school principal.
  • To prepare for useful citizenship.
  • To accept and promote the following ideals:
    1. To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life.
    2. To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
    3. To promote the adoption and application of higher standards in scholarship, sportsmanship and social contacts.
    4. To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
    5. To provide a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render unselfish service and to build better communities.
    6. To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which makes possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will.

The local clubs, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates, assist the Kiwanis Club in carrying out its mission to serve the children of the community.  Sponsored Youth Members serve in their communities, supporting Project Shoe, the Palos Verdes Marathon events 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.  They assist Kiwanis International in carrying out its mission to serve the children of the world.

The Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates sponsors four high school clubs.

  • Palos Verdes High Key Club
  • Peninsula High Key Club
