We aim to make a positive difference both locally and globally. Golden Key chapters perform more than 200,000 community service hours each year. Giving is an art, and Golden Key members are privileged to enjoy this art in a number of ways, from local service events to events on a global scale. In July 2014, Golden Key unveiled its new service initiative called SPARK a Change. The SPARK a Change initiative is designed to harness the power of Golden Key members around the world to impact and improve the lives of at-risk youth.
SPARK a Change
The mission of SPARK a Change is to impact and improve the lives of at-risk youth (ages 0-17) through literacy, education and real-world preparedness. By 2017, Golden Key aims to raise $40,000, dedicate 400,000 hours of service and impact 400,000 lives in local communities & around the world. In order to accomplish this goal, Golden Key chapters across the world will host their own SPARK events throughout the year (with a focus on SPARK Month in October).

For our March service event, we will be reading to elementary school students at Central Elementary School on Friday, March 31, from 8-10 AM. We are looking for a few more volunteers, so if you are available, we would love for you to participate. The address is 3824 21st St. (be cautious using google maps, because it will take you to the wrong 21st St.) I hope to see you all on Friday!
For More Service Opportunities...
We aim to make a positive difference both locally and globally.
