Circle K is an international co-ed service organization that is sponsored by Kiwanis International, with The University of Alabama Circle K Club sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Tuscaloosa
. Circle K Clubs focus on the three tenets of service, leadership, and fellowship
Service is the heart of Circle K. There are a variety of service projects each week varying in date, time, length, and focus. We do projects ranging from the elderly and children to the environment and the homeless. If you don't find a project that interests you or if you have a new project idea, please contact our Vice President
, Eric Powers, and he can help you set up a project that you are interested in. Circle K understands that college life can be very busy, therefore we have a small service hour requirement of six hours per month for our membership.
We want to develop the leadership skills of each of our members. We provide many opportunites for you to discover your talents and have a chance to put them to use. Circle K members can serve on or become chairs of one of our 9 different committees. Circle K also holds a leadership conference each year called Alabama Leadership Academy (ALA) to develop your leadership skills, inform you about club positions, and allow you to meet other club leaders throughout the state!
We know that when you come to the University of Alabama, it can be overwhelming. Circle K works to actively build lasting friendships and to create a sense of community. Through our weekly socials, meetings, service projects and committee events, we strive to make fellowship an integral part of this club. From the nearly members in our club, you are sure to develop some great friendships that will last a life time.
