Due to Covid-19, K2L programming will take place on a virtual platform. Where appropriate, we will incorporate CDC-compliant in-person field trips for local students (details will be announced in other pages of this website when applicable). Gathering as a family looks different in the face of our new adversities but it is still as essential as it has always been to connect with people for support. Every day will begin with a “pick me up” session led by main instructors, assistants, and life guides. We want to maintain a central focus and goal setting each day before we move forward in instruction. This short live session will include interactive engaging activities to get us all going. We will engage in life skills classes in small groups online. The aim is to study lessons that will equip and empower youth to make healthy life choices that will enable them to confidently navigate through obstacles and challenges. Main track classes are presented by our instructors to teach techniques in the various performing arts fields. Every track will have detailed pre-recorded instructional lessons for our students in alignment with the script for our TV show. Live session feedback will be offered after the class session time with instructors, tech support, and assistants to guarantee that each person is achieving the goal of every lesson. Closeout sessions will include open mic talent show time, acknowledgments and shout-outs, and announcements to keep us all on task.
Refunds will be processed up to June 25, 2021, for the Keys to Life Summer Camp program. Due to the significantly reduced cost, please note that once camp begins, we cannot process refunds or deductions if students are absent for any reason. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
In addition, parents must attend the mandatory Virtual Parent Training to receive any granted scholarships. Failure to do so will forfeit your scholarship. However, parents can still enroll their child at the regular $597 cost. Please note there will be no refunds of any payments made towards registration.
Scholarships are offered for the Keys 2 Life program by our generous sponsors to help offset the cost for parents in order to reduce financial barriers that may prevent youth from participating in a quality program experience. There are two scholarships available based upon eligibility, full and partial. Both new and returning students are eligible for a scholarship this year. However, there are only 50 scholarships available (including both full and partial) and they are given on a first-come-first-serve basis. Registration must be completed in order to secure a scholarship. Click here to apply for a scholarship.
You will need to reserve your child’s place in the program by completing the online registration form and paying the fee in full. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. Preference may be given to students who have never participated in the Yunion’s Keys 2 Life or S.W.A.G. (Student’s with Awareness and Goals) programming. However, there will be a limited number of spots reserved for students who have taken part in our programs in the past. Proof of age is also required when registering. Acceptable documentation includes a birth certificate or a current school transcript or class schedule that has the child’s date of birth on it. Please send proof of age documentation via mail, hand-delivery, or fax at 313-870-9772.
