Frequently Asked Questions


  • What are the requirements for Key Club?

    • Turn in application and dues ($15) by the stated deadline
    • Complete 50 service hours by the stated deadline for the school-year
    • All Key Club members MUST complete a minimum of 2 Key Club inside hours projects during the school year (donation hours do not count)
    • No more than 15 donation hours will count
    • 25 of your 50 hours MUST be inside hours
  • What's the difference between "Inside" hours and "Outside" hours?

    • Inside hours consist of any hours you receive from participating in events either at the school itself or an event that you've learned about through the ADHS Key Club itself
    • Outside hours consist of any hours you receive from participating in events that you've found for yourself (ex: you volunteered at an event at your church; you volunteer at a soup kitchen with your family; etc.)
    • If you're unsure about what will count for which type of hour, please contact a member of the board or Ms. Hairston.
  • Can I complete MORE than 25 inside hours?

    • Of course! In fact, all 50 of your hours can be inside hours, as long as you have at least 25.
  • Do I have to get a signature for every event or donation?

    • Yes! If you don't have a signature, those hours won't count. It's important that you have your sheet with you at every event and any time you turn in donations.
  • Should I make a copy or keep records of my hours?

    • Yes. You should definitely make a copy of your sheet and keep an extra record just in case. You never know when you will need to retrieve that information and we do not keep hours sheets from year to year.
  • How long do I have to complete hours?

    • We set a deadline to turn in hours around the end of May every school year. Although you have almost an entire school-year to complete your hours, it's probably best to get as many hours done as soon as you can. It's much easier to find events and opportunities for community service during the Fall Semester than it is to find them in the Spring.
  • I have to complete community service for another organization, can I count those hours for Key Club too?

    • No. You cannot "double-dip." If you are required to complete hours for another club or organization then you cannot count them for both that organization and Key Club.
  • If you have any more questions...feel free to contact a member of the Board or Ms. Hairston!
