WHAT IS SERVICE LEADERSHIP?
LEADING BY HELPING OTHERS
Chatsworth Kiwanis empowers the youth of our community by teaching them new ways to serve the community and by teaching them to be leaders in the hope that they will help mold a better future.
Service Leadership Program for Elementary aged Students
We have K-Kids organizations at Chatsworth Park Elementary and Porter Ranch Community School
K-Kids provide an opportunity for young people to discover their heart to serve. When people have a heart to serve, they begin to make service a part of their character and a part of their daily life. For these people, service is not just about helping those in need, but it also becomes a guide for how they treat everyone around them. When you find your heart to serve, you truly know what it means to be a caring person.
Service Leadership Program for Middle School aged Students We have a Builders Club at Lawrence Middle School and Porter Ranch Community School
Builders Club is an international student-led organization providing members with opportunities to perform service, build character and develop leadership.

Key Leader Camp
Leadership Camp for 8th - 12th grade students
Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership program for today's young leaders. This life-changing event focuses on service leadership as the first, most meaningful leadership-development experience. A Key Leader will learn the most important lesson of leadership—it comes from helping others succeed. Participants begin by attending a Key Leader conference, which is a weekend retreat. Large and small group workshops, discussions and team-building activities take place over the course of the weekend. Students have opportunities to learn leadership skills that will help them to change their schools, communities, and world for the better. While exploring leadership in a whole new way, participants will make amazing new friends and have experiences they will never forget. Positive, ongoing interaction with other Key Leader graduates offers continuing reinforcement, encouragement and growth of leadership skills.
