Kiwanis Key Leader Program

Not everyone is able to attend National FFA conferences. Schedules, traveling and money are often tough challenges to overcome. National FFA Organization recognizes that there are numerous opportunities for our members to learn and grow their leadership potential and some of them occur in their own backyards! Kiwanis Key Leader is one such program.

Kiwanis Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership program for today’s youth leaders. It focuses on service leadership as the first, most meaningful leadership development experience. By participating in a hands-on weekend event, Key Leaders learn that leadership comes from helping others succeed. The program is designed to identify and empower emerging student leaders and move them beyond where most other leadership programs end.

Small and large group workshops, discussions and team-building activities take place over the course of these weekend retreats. Students learn leadership skills that will help them to change their schools and communities for the better. While exploring leadership in a new way, participants will make amazing new friends and have experiences they will never forget. According to one Key Leader graduate, Key Leader “awakened the real me. I was able to gain the self-confidence I never had.”

Since 2005 there have been more than 13,500 Key Leader graduates throughout the United States, Canada, Grand Cayman, Brazil, El Salvador and Malaysia.
