Key Club Sponsorships
Key Club is an international, student-led organization that provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership. High school student members 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. Our support includes Folsom, Vista del Lago and Oakridge High Schools.
