Key Club


Meeting Information: Tuesday (every other)- Before school- Auditorium
The Glenbrook South High School Key Club is all about one thing: Service. We focus on volunteer opportunities that fit our motto of "Service Over Self." Meaning, we want to make sure the opportunities are more focused on those who need it rather than ourselves. We are always looking for ways we can get beyond charity and start focusing on liberty. Liberty means we establish programs and opportunities that better the lives of the people we help for the long run. We have events for all levels of volunteers in a variety of focuses. Our hope is that through our events, members are inspired to proactively participate in volunteer opportunities on their own and eventually make it a habit in their lives beyond their time at GBS. So join us as we challenge each other to redefine what "service" means in our lives!

This year, we will continue to connect with the students virtually until in-person tutoring can resume. Throughout the school-year, we also engage in fundraising activities and collection drives to help the Onward House community.
