About: What is Key Club?
A: Key Club International is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. Key Club International is a part of the Kiwanis International Family of service-leadership programs (exa: Circle K is for college students, Builder's Club is for middle schoolers, and K-Kids is for elementary school students).
It is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through service to others. For more information, visit our Cali-Nev-Ha District's cyberkey!
Chartered in 2012, Cosumnes Oaks Key Club is part of Division 7 South, Region 16, CNH (Cali-Nev-Ha) District.
Our motto is "Caring- Our Way of Life."
The core values of Key Club International are leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness.

Q: What's the Key Club Pledge? (We recite this at the beginning of every club meeting!)
A: I pledge on my honor to uphold the objects of Key Club International; to build my home, school, and community; to serve my nation and God; and combat all forces which tend to undermine these institutions.
A: Every Monday after school from 3:30-4:00PM in Mr. Spaulding's classroom HF11 in the art building. During meetings, we recap on past events and present new social, division, and service events.
Fun fact: COKC was chartered in May 2012 by Crystal Liang (CO'2014). Crystal was president from 2012-2014. Aaron Crook (CO'2015) was president for the 2014-2015 term.
Q: How can I become a member?
A: Fill out your membership application (located under "resources") and turn in to one of the board members!
There is also an annual $15 membership due to become an official member of Key Club International. Paying your dues is highly encouraged, but not mandatory. Being a paid member means that you are qualified to attend FRN (Fall Rally North- our annual field trip to Six Flags) and DCON (Division Convention), run for officer positions, and have your hours recorded for you by the secretary. However, you can still attend all our service events, DCMs, and be an active member of Key Club without being one! Please ask the president if you'd like to know more about the benefits of paying your dues!
If you decided to pay your membership dues, please turn in the student store receipt to an officer. This is extremely important!
Q: How do I get my service hours signed off?
A: After you attend a service event, let our secretary know to get your hours recorded. Your service hours are updated periodically onto the "resource" page of this website. At the end of the school year, you can ask our faculty adviser to sign off on all of your hours at once. Don't forget to have your community service forms filled out ahead of time before you ask him to sign them and please be respectful when asking!
Q: What's the community service chord requirements at Cosumnes Oaks High School?
A: Basically, you must complete a total of 200 hours of community service during your 4 years at COHS.

Q: What does COKC stand for?
A: COKC - Cosumnes Oaks Key Club. A list of key club acronyms can be found here.
Q: You guys mention FRN and DCON a lot. What exactly are they?
A: Fall Rally North is our annual field trip to Six Flags! Due to the District's massive size, two Fall Rallies are held each year; one in Northern California at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, one in Southern California at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Thousands of members gather at each of the two theme parks on their selected day, one in October, one in November. At Fall Rally North and South, LTGs and Executive officers are "auctioned" off to Divisions; the winning Division is able to then spend a designated period of time with the "purchased" officer. Auction funds and a portion of the ticket sales for both events go towards the Pediatric Trauma Program.
DCON stands for District Convention. Every year, key clubbers from around the entire CNH District gather together to celebrate Key Club. Its a 3 day convention filled with workshops and seminars and is a great opportunity to meet key clubbers from all around the District.
The 70th Annual Cali-Nev-Ha District Convention was held in Sacramento, CA on April 8-10, 2016.
Talk to any of the officer if you are interested in attending. DCON is one of the most memorable Key Club events you can ever attend.
