Kansas Kiwanis schedule leadership conference at Rock Springs

The 2018 Kansas Kiwanis Key Leader Conference for high school age students will be held on June 1-3, 2018, at the Rock Springs 4-H Center located south of Junction City, Kan.

Sponsored by the Kansas Kiwanis District, it’s the 14th year of Kiwanis International bringing service leadership to the students of Kansas and the world. Kiwanis Key Leader has served almost 30,000 participants in nearly 600 events in 40 states, Canada and countries around the world.

Key Leader is a weekend leadership experience for today’s youth leaders and future leaders. It’s designed to open doors to all student leaders and those with leadership potential. The main focus is to serve students from 14-17 years of age.

Focusing on service leadership, five key principles are explored during the weekend: integrity, respect, growth, community and excellence. The mission is to provide a life-changing experience that inspires young people to achieve their personal best through service leadership.

Key Leader is led by a professional facilitator who is experienced and has successfully completed a training course on the curriculum plus trained volunteers who coordinate the logistics and supervision of the youth attendees. All adults have completed a limited criminal history background check.

At Rock Springs last year, 65 students from around Kansas participated in the leadership weekend. Participation is open to Key Club members and other students.

Financial assistance is available from the Osage City Kiwanis and the Kansas Kiwanis District. For further information, interested participants should contact the Osage City Kiwanis at 785-528-2891 or 785-217-4586.
