West Hills does much to help out in the community, making sure we’re doing our part to give back. Many different clubs are run across campus providing all different kinds of opportunities for students. Key Club is one of the most popular as it is a community service and volunteer based club that works towards helping the community. Not only does it help the community, it helps students because it shows they’re involved in their school and the volunteer work looks good for college and job applications.
In Key Club students learn how to lead and stand for what’s right through service and volunteering. Students gain a lot of experience and knowledge through participating in Key Club. They’ll pick up leadership skills by running meetings and planning projects and different things they can do around the community. Not only is this club modeled around serving and helping others, but it is designed to help the students as well. It’s supposed to force and train them into positions where they are always leading and always in charge of what’s best to do for the community and choosing how they can help others, so they’re also taking away from these experiences. There are Key Clubs all across the United States pushing students to try new things and help out. All making differences in their areas. It’s an awesome opportunity that West Hills is a school that is a part of this program and that students here work together to make a difference in their community, school, and themselves.
