Key Leader

WELCOME TO KEY LEADER IN THE
CAPITAL DISTRICT OF KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL

WHAT IS KEY LEADER?  

Key Leader empowers students to become more caring and confident leaders. Through team-building activities, group discussions, and personal reflection, participants discover the benefits of Service Leadership.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL KEY LEADER EVENT?

A virtual event is held on Zoom.  It is a lot like a live event but does not involve travel, packing a suitcase or (sadly) enjoying a beautiful campus in person.  But it does have all the elements of a live event that will make you your best Leader-self!

WHAT ARE THE KEY LEADER PRINCIPLES?

Key Leader follows the Robert Greenwood Service Leadership Model.  The program delves into six key principles that spotlight concepts and skills a Service Leader can continually build upon throughout their lives.  The Principles are:

  • Service Leadership
  • Personal Integrity
  • Personal Growth
  • Respect
  • Building Community
  • Pursuit of Excellence

WHEN IS THE NEXT KEY LEADER EVENT?

Virtual Key Leader will be taking place via Zoom on May 14th from 7 – 10pm and on May 15th from 9:30 am – 5:30 pm of 2021. Registration will remain open until May 10th or full capacity is reached, whichever comes first.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

Students who are between the ages of 14 – 18 may attend Key Leader.

STUDENT PARTICIPANT AND STUDENT FACILITATOR – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Student Participants are the main audience of Key Leader.  Most of you registering will be a Student Participant.  Student Facilitators are assigned in advance, so you will know if you are one.  These students take on an additional role of leadership during the event.

WHAT DOES IT COST?

The registration fee is $10, payable by credit card on-line.  This includes event attendance, a T-shirt, a .pdf copy of the Key Leader Student Participant Handbook and the chance to learn, grow and meet students from around the Capital District who are developing their leadership potential, too.

ZOOM ETIQUETTE

All Student Participants, Student Facilitators and Adults are expected to observe proper Zoom Etiquette during the event.  Here’s a reminder of good Zoom Etiquette:
