The Acadiana Homeschool Key Club (AHKC) will hold its first meeting of the 2011-12 school year on Monday, August 29 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the South Regional Branch of the Lafayette Public Library.
AHKC is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Key Club is the world’s largest high school service organization with a membership of nearly 240,000 members in 24 nations. AHKC is the first homeschool Key Club in Louisiana and is chartered by the Saint Martinville Kiwanis Club. Any Acadiana homeschooler in grades 8-12 is welcome to join. Annual dues, payable in September, are $20.
AHKC meets once a month and typically plans one service project per month along with several social activities annually (rock climbing, ultimate frisbee, bowling, etc). Projects are planned and carried out by club members. Members pick and choose activities according to what works best with their schedules and interests. Acadiana Homeschool Key Club provides a great opportunity to meet other homeschooled teens and help the community. It is also highly recognized on college applications.
In conjunction with our first meeting, we will hold a canned vegetable drive for St. Joseph’s Diner, where we will volunteer in September. St. Joseph’s Diner provides hot meals every day of the year for those in need. So, bring some veggies to the meeting!
If you are thinking about joining – but just aren’t sure – please plan to attend the meeting and check out AHKC. Parents are also welcome to attend. If you have any questions, please feel free to email email@example.com or call Dennis at 337.893.5962 or Tyler at 337.406.0478. The international Key Club website is www.keyclub.org.
