KEY Project - Youth Program

The KEY Project Youth Program offers alternative out-of-school intersessions for grades 6-8. Keiki will be immersed in ʻāina-focused projects both on KEY's campus and at multiple community sites. Participants will build this pilina (relationship) with their hands, by assisting partner-led culturally focused projects along the coast; minds, through intergenerational discussions with kupuna and exposure to moʻolelo (stories) and ʻoli (chants); and their stomachs, by learning and preparing healthy recipes with the food they assist in growing from the KEY Project food garden. 

Like the stones of a pā pōhaku alongside a loʻi kalo, our foundation is strong and sturdy. In it holds the knowledge of ourselves, our family values, and our ʻāina that we come from. We hope that through these activities and lessons, your ʻohana (family) becomes more cognizant of your sense of belonging, kuleana (responsibility), and aloha to our ʻāina (place), community, and ka pae ʻāina o Hawaiʻi.
