The Key exists to inspire belief in young people. We want to create a world where young people believe in themselves and achieve thier full potential.

We believe life is much more rewarding when you are in control of the things that really matter and when you can experience life on your own terms.

We know young people have amazing potential. That’s why we work our socks off to provide them with a framework that changes the way young people look at their future. It helps them discover what they are capable of and build the drive and determination to do something meaningful with it.

Our framework helps young people take responsibility for what matters most and experience the rewards of self-discovery and personal development.

We get teams of friends together to think, plan, do and review their very own projects. Thousands of young people do this every year with the support of trained Key Facilitators. All we ask is for young people to engage their individuality, curiosity and creativity as they dream up their projects and work together to make it happen for real.

This simple journey, based around a healthy balance of freedom and structure, provides the vital spark that young people need to ignite their passions and practically develop their skills for real world success.
