In early 2016, Golden Key International Honour Society partnered with Kiddos Atlanta to create a STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) camp for kindergarten and first graders in the Metro Atlanta area. The camp is now going on its second year and is expanding to include kindergarten through fourth grade. Golden Key Kiddos is a five-week summer camp that will begin in May, 2017 at Burgess Peterson Elementary, an Atlanta Public School. 70-80 campers will be provided two meals a day along with a wide range of curricular and physical activities. The camp will be run by a combination of Kiddos staff as well as Golden Key interns and volunteers.
Golden Key Kiddos directly supports Golden Key's global service initiative, SPARK a Change, which exists to impact and improve the lives of at-risk youth through literacy, education and real-world preparedness. Golden Key set a three-year golad for SPARK a Change to raise $40,000, dedicate 400,000 hours of service and impact 400,000 lives. Golden Key wanted to donate the $40,000 to a program that embodied SPARK a Change and that would have a lasting impact. Executive Director Brad Rainey had the idea of starting a summer camp. "We feel this is an opportunity to impact the lives of local Atlanta students and give them a place to learn, grow and prepare to return to school in the Fall feeling confident and ready to learn."
Golden Key is incredibly excited to be partnering with Kiddos Atlanta to offer Golden Key Kiddos. This opportunity will provide internships to Golden Key members looking to expand their resumes and professional experiences. GK interns will be able help plan and lead lessons as well as participate in professional development workshops while providing a meaningful service to the Atlanta community.
