The Kiwanis Club of Issaquah proudly sponsors active Key Clubs at Issaquah High School and Liberty High School in the Issaquah School District. Key Clubs are one of the oldest and largest service leadership programs in the world for high school students. Through involvement in Key Club, students learn how to be effective leaders while serving their communities.
Key Clubs are part of the Kiwanis international family. Today, over 5,000 Key Clubs are active on high school campuses in the United States, Canada, Central and South America, several Caribbean nations, and Australia. Key Club members can engage with Key Club International at the regional, state, national and international levels, with opportunities to meet other teens from many different backgrounds and lived experiences.
Every year, Key Club members and Kiwanis Club of Issaquah members work side-by-side on projects such as Salmon Days, Concerts on the Green, Pumpkin Patch at Fletcher Farms, environmental restoration projects, and Spring Clean. For more information, contact Ruben Nieto, Issaquah High School Key Club Liaison, firstname.lastname@example.org or Connie Fletcher, Liberty High School Key Club Liaison, email@example.com

The Kiwanis Club of Issaquah proudly sponsors Aktion Club of Salmon Country, serving adults with disabilities in the Issaquah-Bellevue and greater Eastside area. Kiwanis-sponsored Aktion Clubs are the only club in the world for adults with disabilities. Over 10,000 members world-wide learn how to serve others while becoming competent, capable and caring leaders. The group’s motto is “Aktion Club is where development has no disability.”
Kiwanis Club of Issaquah is pleased to partner with AtWork!, a regional organization providing jobs and training for adults with disabilities, on the sponsorship of Aktion Club. The Kiwanis Club of Issaquah was instrumental in founding the forerunner of AtWork!, previously known as Community Enterprises of Issaquah.
