Each EXCEL Club is sponsored and mentored by a local Exchange Club. All high school students are welcome to get involved. EXCEL Clubs can be formed in any secondary school, including public, private, parochial and vocational schools. The two basic requirements are to recruit young people who are willing to take on the challenge of becoming charter members of a youth organization, and the sponsoring Exchange Club must have the dedication to advise and guide the EXCEL Club to fruition.
EXCEL Clubs are groups of high school students dedicated to improving their schools, communities and country through volunteerism. As members of EXCEL Clubs serve their communities, they also develop valuable leadership and networking skills. EXCEL Club members learn by doing. The students, with the help of a school advisor, lead the club, decide on how to serve their school and community and then get actively involved in doing just that.
