This year's Governor's Project is Erika's Lighthouse!
Erika's Lighthouse is a Key Club International Service Partner and a not-for-profit dedicated to educating and raising awareness about adolescent depression, encouraging good mental health and breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
The Southwest District has two goals this year:
Encouraging all clubs in the Southwest District to become "Affiliate Clubs" with Erika's Lighthouse, and
Fundraising for Erika's Lighthouse!
I've created a video to show you how to make your Key Club an Erika's Lighthouse Affiliate Club:
It costs NOTHING to become an Affiliate Club, but doing so will give your Club access to numerous mental health lessons and activities, which we all know can be useful for student leaders!
A section on the Resource Portal specifically for Key Clubs to find information about becoming an Affiliate Club, our Official Partnership Campaigns & Resources, a variety of activities, the Student Fundraising Center and our Mental Health Student Leadership Academy education modules. Log in to the Resource Portal HERE and then scroll down to find the horizontal heading titled "Key Club & SADD Nation" (in yellow).
Check back in December to learn more about our fundraising goal and how your club can participate!
Please let me or your Lt. Governor know if you have any difficulties, and thank you for participating in the 2023-2024 SWD Key Club Governor's project!
