Staying Connected As An Alumni

People come into your life for a reason, whether for a season or a lifetime. When you joined Golden Key as a college or graduate student, you became a part of a global group with a shared commitment to the three pillars—and to each other. Whether or not you realized it at the time, you made a commitment that will last a lifetime!

Jason du Plessis - Stellenbosch University

"Most Golden Key members believe that the benefits of joining are limited to the duration of their studies. On the contrary, my involvement with my local Stellenbosch chapter and International Student Council equipped me with the necessary leadership skills and experience to pursue my desired career. GK provided me with employment prospects in my home country and abroad. By capitalizing on these opportunities and benefits, I will be able to grow and develop in my career as a proud GK South African alumnus." Read more of Jason's story.
