Graduating high school and leaving Key Club and heard you should give Circle K a try? Heard of Circle K at your university but not sure why you should join? Let’s see what’s in it for you.
First of all, if you don’t already know, look up the Circle K at your school. Check out the Student Activities Center at your campus to look up officer contact information for the club, or look up to see if the club has a website that shows meetings time and place (if you find out your university doesn’t have a CKI, you can change that! Be sure to look at the resources on starting a CKI, found on the Capital District website).
So what benefits do you get from being a paid member of a Circle K club? Most basically, you have constant updates of community service opportunities for you to be involved with. CKI provides many fellowship opportunities as well, and can often give you some networking connections. With a depth of positions at the club, district, and international level, CKI also provides a ton of opportunities for leadership and growth.

Being a member of a CKI club is what you make of it, and being an involved member can take far in your own development as a leader and dedicated member of the community.
So you want to start a Circle K?
