Circle K International is the largest collegiate service organization in the world that focuses on developing students into leaders with a lifelong commitment to service and fellowship. We are committed to working towards the greater good of the public and are determined to uphold the values of this organization. Formed under Kiwanis International, CKI focuses among three important tenets: service, leadership, and fellowship. These three tenets are what defines Circle K and how this organization strives to better the world that we live in.
Service is the core element of Circle K International and without it, this organization would not be what it is today. With each service project, Circle K members work their way towards making the community and the world a better place.
Circle K International recognizes the potential of humanity and gives all college students the opportunity to find the leader in each of them. Members can assume leadership positions at different levels of the organization and pave way to a future generation of active citizens in the community.
The idea of fellowship is key to understanding the power of this organization. With Circle K clubs across the globe, members are able to meet new people and create friendships that will last a lifetime. You not only gain a sense of belonging, but also a family that you can rely on and a home away from home.
Circle K Pledge
“I pledge to uphold the objects of Circle K International, to foster compassion and goodwill toward others through service and leadership.
