Golden Key members can benefit from numerous programs and privileges—each of which falls un-der the pillars of Academics, Leadership and Service. These programs and privileges add tangible value to membership with the opportunities and discounts they provide.
Golden Key believes in connecting its members with continuing educational opportunities. Society members are granted access to numerous academic scholarships and awards amounting to more than $600,000 annually. Those interested in pursuing an MBA or other graduate degree can take advantage of Golden Key’s Graduate School Connections portal, which houses information about graduate school entrance exams, recruitment events and programs at top schools. Furthermore, members gain real-life experience in their field of choice through exclusive internship opportunities and study abroad programs.
Personal and professional development is key to unlocking your potential, and Golden Key can pro-vide the tools you need to get there. The Society has an On-Demand Training Library, accessible with your member ID, full of tips and instructional videos to help you improve your skills in the areas of leadership, goal-setting and teamwork. The Golden Key Job Board and Vault Career Library offer insights and opportunities to put your leadership skills into practice. And at the chapter level, members can become officers and use their new abilities to interact with their peers. Sign in to access the Training Library.
Giving is an art, and Golden Key members are privileged to enjoy this art in a number of ways, from local service events to global Make a Difference days. Golden Key partners with various non-profit organizations to provide volunteer opportunities for its members. Though the focus is on literacy, Society-sponsored events range from organizing a race to fight cancer to clothing the homeless. Members are invited to participate in local and global projects at the annual Regional and International Summits.
Golden Key teams up with big-name financial, insurance and educational companies to provide discounts on valuable goods and services to its members. This benefit allows members to save on computer equipment, electronics, textbooks, preparatory courses, insurance plans and banking—providing a monetary reward for their achievements.
