Congrats to the 380 Golden Key members who were selected to be a part of the 2009 Teach for America Corps!


Golden Key International Honour Society, founded on 29 November 1977, is an academic honor society which recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines.

Golden Key would like to congratulate the 380 members who were selected to be a part of the 2009 Teach for America Corps.  Teach for America aims to end educational inequity – the reality that in the US, where a child is born determines his or her educational outcomes and life prospects.  TFA works with a great sense of urgency to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort.  The TFA vision is that one day, all children in the US will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.
Golden Key members have been helping advance this mission many years.  These 380 Golden Key members have committed to teach for two full years at urban and rural public schools all across the country.  The corps members represent a multitude of backgrounds, majors and career interests.  All have demonstrated high levels of past achievement in academics, extracurricular activities and/or work and family responsibilities.  If you are interested in meeting Teach for America staff stop by their booth at the International Conference Expo or for more information, click here.
