About Us


I pledge, on my honor,
to uphold the Objects of Key Club International;
to build my home, school and community;
to serve my nation and God;
and combat all forces which tend to undermine these institutions.

What is Key Club and what does it do?

Founded in 1925, Key Club is the oldest and largest community service program for high school students in world. What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. As members of the Kiwanis International organization, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.

Today, Key Club exists on almost 5,000 high school campuses, primarily in the United States and Canada. Growth efforts, however, have taken the Key Club experience internationally to Canada, the Caribbean nations, Central and South America, and most recently to Asia and Australia.

Key Club International is an organization of individual Key Clubs and is funded by nominal dues paid by every member. Its officers are high school leaders elected by the members at district and International conventions. The organization offers a wide range of opportunities to its members:

• Leadership development
• Vocational guidance
• College scholarships
• Service-learning
• Personal enrichment

How can I join the TPHS Key Club?

Come to one of our meetings held during lunchtime every Thursday in the Lecture Hall (near the gym). Everyone is welcome to attend. Membership applications can be obtained either at the meetings or at the website.

How does the TPHS Key Club operate?

At each meeting the officers will announce the details about upcoming events and lay out sign-up sheets for those events. Members may then sign up for events they are interested in. Members are not obliged to go to a certain event--they may attend as many or as few events as they wish to. If a member misses a meeting, he or she can check the website for up-to-date information.

What has the TPHS Key Club been doing recently?

Key Club is very busy with many events every week. A few events we have recently done include: packing food at the San Diego Food Bank, helping the elderly at the Brighton Gardens Senior Living Center, making cards for cancer patients at the Children’s Hospital, picking up trash on the beach, and collecting supplies for victims of Hurricane Katrina, to name just a few.
