Serving Claremont and the world since 1924


Youth Programs

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

Claremont Kiwanis sponsors three youth clubs:

  • Key Club at Claremont High School
  • Key Club at San Antonio High School
  • Circle K at the Claremont Colleges

Our sponsored youth groups independently initiate service projects and community service activities throughout the school year. Our club works through an adviser in each youth organization 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 youth groups and their accomplishments which make our community a much better place to live. The activities listed below are a small portion of the many projects they are involved in: 

  • Key Club members at both high schools have raised money for UNICEF at Halloween.
  • Key Club members helped plant trees in partnership with Sustainable Claremont, Claremont Kiwanis, and City of Claremont staff members.
  • Both Key Clubs served as guides at the Pilgrim Place Festival which draws nearly 15,000 Festival attendees.
  • Key Club members served as part of the support team for the Special Olympics bowling event.
  • Key Club members from both high schools participated in the Relay for Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
  • Throughout the year, Circle K and Key Club members volunteer and support Kiwanis Club projects, such as the Fourth of July celebration, as well and carry out their own service projects.
