OAKLAND KEY CLUB
Key Club is the world's biggest international student-led organization. Oakland High School is one of the nine schools that make up Division 2 North.
At Oakland High School, we meet every Friday in Room 220 at lunch. During our meetings, we discuss future events, officer opportunities, and recognize members who have shown exemplary participation.

DIVISION 2 NORTH
Division 2 North is made up of nine schools: Albany, American Indian, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Oakland, Oakland Charter, Oakland Technical, Piedmont, and Skyline.
Division 2 North was initially Division 2 before being split into North and South, and is one of five divisions in Region 9. Our mascot is the Lime Green Kiwi bird.
CNH KEY CLUB
CNH stands for California-Nevada-Hawaii, or Cali-Nev-Ha for short. There are over 45,000 dues-paid members spanning over 74 divisions!
District Convention, otherwise known as DCON, is an annual event where Key Clubbers from all over CNH come together to celebrate the achievements of the past term.
Fun fact...Luis Silva was the District Technology Editor for the 2020-2021 term!
PEDIATRIC TRAUMA PROGRAM (PTP)
The reason why we raise money for PTP is that it will benefit the children; 90% of unintentional injuries can be prevented.
The money we raise goes towards the training of pediatric doctors, nurses, and first responders. The funds raised for this program will also help to purchase the much needed pediatric equipment.
Donations designated for the Pediatric Trauma Program are spent in three major areas: grants to our partner hospitals; grants to Kiwanis and Service Leadership Program clubs; and PTP safety items that are available for purchase by the Kiwanis family at a subsidized cost.
MATERNAL/NEONATAL TENATUS (MNT)
In 13 countries around the world, maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) can quickly turn the joy of childbirth into tragedy. MNT kills one baby every fifteen minutes and can kill the mothers as well. Its effects are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. There is little hope of survival.
$1.80, Just three doses of immunization is all it takes to protect mothers, who then pass on the immunity to their future babies.
MARCH OF DIMES
Every day 1 in 8 babies born in the U.S. arrives too soon. Premature birth can happen to any pregnant woman, and no one knows why. It is a serious, common, and costly problem.
Key Club members are helping by raising thousands of dollars annually for the March of Dimes Youth Program to help prevent prematurity.
Key Clubbers around the world remember collecting dimes in hopes that someday children would be born free of birth defects. Today, Key Club members still collect change to support the March of Dimes.
CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK
The Children’s Miracle Network is a nonprofit organization that fundraises money to benefit hospitalized kids. For over 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, they have raised $4.7 billion since 1983.
The money directly goes to purchasing new equipment, training staff, conducting research to benefit the cause, directing programs, and providing health care for children whose parents can’t afford to pay.
