Builders Club puts students on the path to lifelong servant leadership. Help them stay on that path after middle school: Encourage members to join Key Club in high school. In fact, get them familiar with the program now! We have three ideas for making a lasting connection.
Ask Builders Club officers to contact Key Clubs in your area and see if the two clubs can collaborate. Here are three suggestions:
- Attend each other’s meetings. This is a great way for the two clubs to support each other and even combine their efforts as they make a difference in the community. When members are regularly in each other’s presence, the clubs can learn from each other and share ideas.
- Serve together. Encourage the club presidents to coordinate a project in which members from both clubs serve side by side.
- Be social. A great way the two clubs can get to know each other is through fellowship. This can be something as simple as a pizza party or a tour of the high school. It’s an opportunity for middle school students who are curious—maybe even a little nervous—about high school to have a relaxed setting to explore and ask questions. Builders Club members should take the opportunity to ask Key Clubbers what it’s like to be in high school. Work with your members to brainstorm questions, so they go in feeling comfortable asking the teens about their experiences.
