P.S. Don’t just take my word for how amazing being part of Golden Key can be. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from members we’ve worked with throughout the years. Their value is priceless.

“I encourage everyone to check out Golden Key; it’s quite literally changed my life—from the fantastic team I’m surrounded by at Brock University, to the students I’ve met across the globe and as part of CoSM, to the Board of Directors and staff I’ve grown to know as family.”

Amanda MacDonald
Chair of the Council of Student Members for Golden Key

“The amount of service projects Golden Key offers inspires me. Plus, having the ability to serve on the officer board for my campus was a fantastic experience.”
