Service Leadership Programs


Key Club

Kiwanis programs for youth help create the next generation of community leaders.

Key Club, the world’s oldest and largest service organization for high school students, encourages leadership development through service to others.

The Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma (KCCL) chartered their first Key Club in 1998 at Parkdale Collegiate Institute. This was only the beginning of our Service Leadership Program. Since then, two other Key Clubs have been chartered at Harbord Collegiate Institute, and York Memorial Collegiate Institute.

We dedicate funds to support initiatives in our Service Leadership Program: the Divisional Leadership Training Conference, Key Leader, Key Club District Conference and an expanding number of Key Club Scholarships.

The Key Club District Educational and Leadership Conference (DELC) is organized by the Division Lieutenant Governor for members from the 10 Key Clubs in the GTA. Sharing successes and tips for running meetings and fundraisers and volunteer activities help strengthen Key Clubs and motivate members to contribute to their school and community.

Key Leader is a weekend program at the Circle Square Ranch in Brantford, focussing on service leadership. Students learn that leadership comes with helping others succeed. Through discussions, group work and team-building activities, participants learn skills to improve their schools and community, have fun and make friends.

Every year, we subsidize Key Club members to attend the Eastern Canada District Key Club Convention. Students are offered the opportunity to expand their knowledge of Key Club, interact with others from across Eastern Canada, and experience another Canadian city.

At a meeting in September 2021, the Club made Nick DiDonato an Honorary Member of KCCL because of his incredible support for our Club.
At that meeting, I spoke to our members about the upcoming fooddrive and after I finished, Nick suggested that he could help out. For the entire month of October, Casa Loma stages a Halloween event called "Legends of Horror" and he offered to collect food for the Thanksgiving Food Drive during this event. What a gracious and generous offer!
I have no doubt that with Nick's incredible support this new initiative will be a great success!
