Programs & Services

KEY Project currently has three pillar programs to share with everyone in your ʻohana.  Our Youth, Kupuna, and Living Library programs offer a range of more targeted services, while our mission guides us to lead broader community based programs on a regular basis.  

Youth Program

Do you live in the areas of Kāneʻohe to Kahuku, are in grades 6-8, and want to experience ʻāina-based experiential learning activities in Koʻolau? Sessions are offered during breaks from school in spring, summer, and fall. Click here to learn more!

Kupuna Program

Do you live in the areas of Kāneʻohe to Kahuku and are over the age of 50? Join KEY Projectʻs Kupuna Program to access a welcoming and supportive space to connect with other kupuna. We offer exercise, art, digital literacy, cultural activities, connection to resources, and weekly meals.

Living Library

The newest program at KEY is dedicated to preserving our past,  and capturing our present and future community self-determination through digital images, video, and audio stories of resilience from our community. Are you interested in having your story shared? 


Do you have a passion for giving back to your community? KEY Project is always looking for volunteers to support our events and activities. Click here to explore volunteer opportunities! 


We have a multi-purpose community center with facilities to meet the needs of our community. Commercial kitchen use, computer lab, banquet hall, and more! We thrive on hosting community events, offering facilities-use to partner organizations, and programming that brings our community together.

KEY Supporters who make it happen

Mahalo to everyone who generously donates and supports our efforts.  We could not continue to hold space for everyone if not for the funds, time, knowledge, and skills of our dedicated partners.

From Youth Program Parent regarding Spring Break 2022 Intersession

“Mahalo for the pictures, ‘ike, and opportunities. [My daughter] is thoroughly enjoying herself and is learning so much. She shared a few pictures on our family group chat that everyone can learn from. I wish I could go with you guys tomorrow! She’s looking forward to it. I hope you folks are enjoying yourself as much as the keiki are. 😊”

From Kupuna Program Participant

From Kupuna Program Participant
