Key Club, National Honor Society and Leaders 4 Fishers help the community in many different ways. The members of these clubs gain service hours for their time. Headless Horseman, All Treats No Tricks and Bulldog Bash are just a few events where these clubs volunteer.

When students are involved in these clubs they get to know people of the community, receive service hours and do many different activities such as building a house.

“Key Club is a great way to get involved in the community and the students really enjoy helping out,” club sponsor Leann Dixon said.

Each club requires different numbers of service hours a semester with NHS requiring five and Key Club requiring four. Different local businesses and events request volunteers, and that is where these clubs step in.

“One always feels good helping out others. They may experience something they may never get to experience otherwise,” NHS sponsor Darcy Banitt said.

Service hours are mandatory for some diploma options. Students involved in these clubs receive a cord at graduation.

The students in these clubs make an effort to positively impact the community through volunteering their time and energy. Join Key Club, NHS or L4F to volunteer your time. To learn more about these clubs, click here.
