ATLANTA, GEORGIA: Golden Key International Honour Society has announced an official partnership with the Robert Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership. Golden Key is the world’s largest collegiate honor society, accepting only the top 15% of sophomores, juniors and seniors as well as top performing graduate students. Golden Key’s mission is to enable its members to realize their potential through the advancement of academics, leadership and service. This mission is what drove Golden Key to find a way to expand its leadership benefits to more of its members.
“In today’s collegiate world, students need to find ways to set themselves apart. They need to not only excel in the classroom, but develop their leadership skills while giving back to their communities,” said Brad Rainey, Golden Key’s Executive Director. “This new partnership will allow Golden Key members to continue to grow, develop and harness their leadership skills, while providing a real benefit to their campus and local communities.”
The Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership is an international nonprofit whose mission is to advance the awareness, understanding and practice of servant leadership by individuals and organizations. Robert Greenleaf’s vision was to have servant leadership establish more people-centered institutions and enrich the lives of individuals.
With these mission statements in mind, both organizations met to express their interests and goals. A plan was created and programming is being solidified to launch the new benefits of the collaboration. The collaboration will include various in-person leadership trainings, webinars and discounts on Greenleaf trainings and publications for Golden Key members. One of the largest benefits from the partnership is the “Train the Trainer” sessions presented by a Greenleaf representative. A group of Golden Key leaders will take part in a weekend training that will teach them to conduct leadership training sessions on their campuses. Greenleaf hopes to be able to spread its resources to campuses through Golden Key chapters.
Both nonprofit organizations are headquartered in Atlanta, GA and are members of the Georgia Center for Nonprofits. For more information about the organizations please visit www.goldenkey.org and www.greenleaf.org.
