  • Our Impact

    A snapshot of some of our previous in-person events!

    Fremont Main Library Family Fun Day Service Event

    During our first event of the 2019-2020 school year, volunteers helped out at the Fremont Main Library's Family Fun Day event by maintaining the petting zoo, carnival games, face painting, cotton candy making, prize station, and information desk. Because of the collaborative efforts of Key Clubbers, the event of more than 200 attendees was able to run very smoothly.

    Tule Ponds Service Event

    At the Tule Ponds Service Event, volunteers participated in restoration efforts to clear hiking paths surrounding the pond. Using loppers to clip away weeds and invasive plant species, volunteers were able to help protect the native plant species of the pond ecosystem. Afterwards, volunteers use wheelbarrows to bring weed clippings to compost.

    2019 Orientation

    Thank you to the 130 students who signed up for MSJ Key Club's mailing list during orientation, and thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth. It was great seeing so many new faces, as well as returning members. We hope you learned more about our club and cause!

    Homeless Care Package Assembling

    This service event was a collaboration with EM Collective, a cultural organization that seeks to empower Asian Americans. Volunteers assembled care packages for people experiencing homelessness in Milpitas. Packages included new toys, hygiene products, and food. Thank you to the 40+ members who came! With your help, we were able to assemble 600+ care packages!

    Fall Rally North

    Congratulation to our Division 12 East for placing 3rd at the spirit rally. Thank you to the MSJ Key Clubbers who contributed to this effort! We hope you had a rewarding experience fundraising for the Pediatric Trauma Program, networking with Key Clubbers from all over Northern California, and showcasing your Key Club spirit!

    Fall Bonding 2019

    At our first-ever Key Club Bonding event, members engaged in a variety of team bonding activities including a "What does Key Club mean to you?" art contest, spirit chant challenge, Key Club Kahoot trivia, and more. We hope everyone had a rewarding experience filled with building new friendships and exploring Key Club's values. The winning team of the art contest is pictured on the right, but everyone who attended that day was a winner!

    InterKeyLeo Canned Food Drive

    With Thanksgiving around the corner, this event was a collaboration between three Mission San Jose High School service clubs: Key Club, Interact, and LEO. First, volunteers passed out flyers to each household in the community around our high school, asking for donations of non-perishable food items. One week later, volunteers returned to collect donations. The donations were brought to the Abode Homeless Shelter. It was really impressive seeing how many Key Clubbers showed up, and with your help we were able to collect more than 45 cans of food!

    Shinn Historical Park Service Event

    Preparing for the Holiday season, Key Clubbers helped out with making holiday wreaths at Fremont's Shinn Historical Park. It was an excellent opportunity for them to explore their creativity and practice their teamwork skills during the process. The wreaths were put up around the garden afterwards for visitors of the public park to admire.

    Rose River Memorial Service Event

    To commemorate lives lost to the COVID 19 virus, Key Clubbers gathered over zoom call, creating paper roses to mail to Rose River Memorial, a nation-wide project based in Los Angeles. Through this project, we were able to remember the losses our nation has suffered during this harsh time of pandemic through beautifully crafted roses.

    Project Empow-HER

    In honor of woman's history month, msj x ihs x mhs x ahs volunteers gathered over zoom call to create infographics and posters to spread awareness about inspirational women in the past. Through this project, attendees were able to learn about the women who have greatly impacted our world throughout the decades. These finished posters were donated to local elementary schools to educate and inspire young children around our community!

    Key-Ping Up With Donuts

    To celebrate Mission San Jose Highschool's Multicultural Week, volunteers gathered on zoom call to learn about the various types of donuts around the world to celebrate different cultures as well as to raise awareness for different social issues around the globe. Additionally, attendees gained service hours by drawing donuts together to donate to foster children at Abode Services.  

    Books In Nooks Service Event

     MSJ Key Club worked alongside Access Books Bay Area, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high poverty students with the chance to discover their passions for reading, and transforming library spaces for schools across the Bay. Key Clubbers gathered over zoom call to craft bookmarks, and donated books through a drop off system to help contribute in bringing high quality, high-interest, and culturally relevant books to children living in poverty.

    Shumi Ramen + Umi Bubble Tea Fundraiser

    In the month of January, MSJ Key Clubbers fulfilled their boba and ramen cravings at Shumi Ramen. 10% of proceeds were sent towards one of Division 12 East's main charities: the Pediatric Trauma Program, providing funds for the training of pediatric doctors and nurses, and towards donating medical equipment in hopes of helping to prevent traumatic injuries towards children.

    Shinn Park Gardening

    On July 18th, MSJ Key Club hosted their first in-person service event since the beginning of the pandemic! Collaborating with the Friends of Heirloom Flower Garden Club, members assisted in gardening, mulching, weeding, and setting up a plant sale at Shinn Historical Park and Arboretum, a cozy green space with beautiful gardens, including a rose garden, cottage garden, and Japanese garden. Members, finally meeting fellow peers that’ve only existed as little Zoom squares for the past year, quickly reunited with old friends and enthusiastically gardened with people they’ve never seen in person before! The feedback for this event was extremely positive, and everyone who attended had a splendid time socializing with each other, while gulping down cold drinks and mochi candy after a long three hours of gardening!

  • 2021-2022

    Despite the hardships posed by COVID-19, key clubbers all around the district were passionate about continuing to provide service, especially in this time of need. Together, key clubbers and officers worked tirelessly to host virtual service events, fundraisers, meetings, and bondings to strengthen our impact in our community, and keep our hearts and mindsets strong.

    Project Hope and Beyond Service Event

    During Project Hope and Beyond, attendees made posters and cards to promote mental health awareness and importance by providing resources in the local community for support, and addressing the stigma and discriminations regarding mental health. Additionally, members were able to sit through a series of relaxing and fun activities, as well as a short informational documentary!

     

    Nothing Bundt Cake Fundraiser

    After a tiring period of exams, assignments, and remote learning, MSJ Key Club hosted their "Nothing Bundt Cakes" Fundraiser to reward attendees, and remind them that taking a break is okay. Provided was a wide variety of cakes to choose from, such as bite-sized cakes, towered cakes, or graduation/celebration-themed cakes. Additionally, 15% of all proceeds were donated towards the Pediatric Trauma Program, one of D12E's preferred charities that recognizes the serious need for education and training in the areas of pediatric trauma and injury prevention.

     

    Zoom Into Zooniverse

    During MSJ Key Club's "Zoom Into Zooniverse" Service Event, attendees used online, global platform called Zooniverse (zooniverse.org) to help conduct “people-powered research,” in which volunteers will help researchers look through large amounts of data that they have collected during their experiments.There were hundreds of research projects in a variety of fields, ranging from the sciences, such as biology and physics, to the arts, such as history, language and literature.Through this event, we were able to support professional researchers in discovering more about the world and gain some insight into the advancements in research going around us right now!

    Miles for Smiles

    During the Miles for Smiles Service Event, participants used an app called Charity Miles to donate money to a charity of their choice. For every mile walked, ran, or cycled, the app donated money to their chosen charity. Through this event, members were provided with a wonderful opportunity to help support over 40 different non profit charities while having fun staying fit, and getting in some exercise while staying at home!

As a co-activities coordinator, my role is to organize service events— to provide not only fun and engaging opportunities for you to give back to our community, but also incredible chances for you to discover your passions, interests, and explore beyond your boundaries. Key Club was the first club I joined in high school, and I remember entering it, feeling nervous, scared, and uncertain about leaving my comfort zone; however, these fears soon dissipated as the Key Club family welcomed me with open arms. I’ve learned to overcome my shyness and reach out because at Key Club, we are all united, united by our love for service, for our community, for each other. Outside of Key, I like to cook, read (always open for recommendations!), and go on walks around the neighborhood. I also play badminton and do bullet journaling.

    Hey there! My name is Jessica Guan, and it is my greatest honor to be able to serve MSJ Key Club as their junior representative this term. Joining Key Club at the start of my freshman year was truly the best decision that I have made in high school to date. I attended their first general meeting and instantly fell in love with everything that they do. To have been able to call this club my second family throughout the last two years has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. This club has offered me so many wonderful and unique opportunities to leave a lasting impact on my community through service while bettering myself by being surrounded by some of the most hard-working and compassionate individuals that I have ever met. I have been able to be a part of something greater than myself, and the feeling that I experience whenever I can help put a smile on someone else’s face has become priceless to me.

  • Member Recognition Program

    1

    What is it?

    The Member Recognition Program, or MRP for short, is a program that recognizes members across the CNH District for their dedication towards Key Club. There are four levels: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum, and each level requires that members reach a certain number of service hours and complete other fulfillments.

    2

    Why should I participate in it?

    The MRP is an incredible way for members to get recognized for all of their passion for Key Club. Not only will members receive an official award from the CNH District, but they also get to walk across the stage at District Convention!

    3

    How can I find more information?

    For more information on the MRP and on how to qualify for the various awards, please visit [https://www.cnhkeyclub.org/recognition]. Additionally, members can reach out to the 2021-2022 club Secretary (Angela Xiong) to verify that their service hours on the MRF are accurately accurate.
