Serving the Children of the World

Youth Programs

Kiwanis International is a "family" of organizations that focuses on teaching teenagers and young children about the responsibilities of good citizenship, community service and building future leaders.

The Ashland Kiwanis Club sponsors the Ashland High School Key Club. Our Key Club independently initiates service projects and community service activities throughout the school year. Ashland Kiwanis works through an adviser at the high school to coordinate our participation with their activities or to have them work with us on major service programs and fund raisers.

We are so proud of our Key Club and their accomplishments which make our community a much better place to live. The activities listed below are representative of the many projects they are involved in each year: 

  • Special Olympics bowling at Lava Lanes in Medford, volunteer to help with lane management, cheerleading, etc.
  • Help to purchase Christmas gifts for the Lithia Springs "at risk" students.
  • Help to purchase Christmas gifts for needy (i.e. wellfare) children of Ashland.
  • Candy Cane fundraiser at Ashland High School in December for cerebral palsy child, a "sparrow" at Bellview Elementary.
  • Relay for Life (April and May) fundraiser for cancer.
  • Handing out flowers at Linda Vista Nursing & Rehabilitation
  • Monster Dash marketing and road monitoring in October.
  • Attendance at Key Club District Convention to further their leadership skills.
