  • No Name-Calling Week will be January 24–28, 2011

    No Name-Calling Week is an annual week of educational activities aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds and providing schools with the tools and inspiration to launch an ongoing dialogue about ways to eliminate bullying in their communities. This year, No Name-Calling Week will take place the week of January 24–28, 2011. The project seeks to focus national attention on the problem of name-calling in schools and to provide students and educators with the tools and inspiration to launch an ongoing dialogue about ways to eliminate name-calling in their communities. The curricular materials on this website and in the Resource Kit are primarily aimed at middle school students, specifically grades 5–8, but may be modified for older or younger students. Feel free to download materials off this website, or order the Resource Kit and create your own No Name-Calling Week initiative in your community.

  • Trick or Treat for UNICEF: 60 years strong

    For 60 years now, children in the United States have dressed in costume on Halloween night and gone door to door collecting coin donations for UNICEF. Since 1994, Key Club has joined in the fun Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF, a worldwide organization that, like Kiwanis, is dedicated to serving children’s needs. Over the years, Key Clubbers—with help from Builders Clubs— have raised nearly $5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide, HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland and, most recently, Operation Uruguay: Protecting the rights of children.

    Join Key Club in their effort to raise $1.5 million for Operation Uruguay by Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF.  Builders Clubs and Key Clubs will receive their collection boxes in early fall. Order any extra collection boxes—and encourage members of your Service Leadership Program clubs to do the same—from UNICEF.
