Caring - Our Way of Life
Key Club is an international student led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character, and develop leadership. Its vision is to develop competent, capable, and caring leaders through the vehicle of service. The Glen Ridge High School Key Club was chartered in 1968 by the Glen Ridge Kiwanis Club to provide high school students the opportunity to serve others in Glen Ridge and surrounding communities. Each year club members work on their own project initiatives, and those of Kiwanis, with help from faculty and Kiwanis advisors.
