Service and Civic Engagement
Circle K International
Service is our thing. It’s not just something we do, it’s how we’re wired. That’s why Circle K International has the highest per member service hour average of any Kiwanis-family club. On campuses and in communities across the globe, we touch lives and make a difference. Circle K International is part of the Kiwanis community and is the college equivalent of Key Club, which is present in many high schools. The organization is a service organization that does service projects, fundraisers, and other such activities for charitable purposes. Circle K also believes in having strong ties with all chapters, and there are several social events held each year that allow for networking and leadership skill development
