About Us


To help youth develop the capacity, confidence, and courage to positively impact the communities around us.



Cultivating self discipline

Keeping the body healthy

Acheiving mindfulness

Actively involved in the change

This is the perfect opportunity to change the world, starting with self. We are committed to service, organized to leverage our talents, and responsible for the development of our surrounding community.

Who We Are?

Good question!

Lawyers, accountants, teachers, software engineers, college advisors, public servants, and many other professional titles. But at the "COR" we are just human beings. We have accepted the responsibility to unselfishly engage and develop the communities around us. We come from different backgrounds, we have different religions, and the color of our skin varies. But at the "COR" we believe that inner peace is primary and necessary for all.


COR is established under our nonprofit corporation KEYS Development Inc. We are a 501c3 recognized organization.


Our youth are our future. And right now we have the power to shape the future. We expect our future to be healthy, safe, productive, and focused. That's why we provide program activites such as martial arts, fitness training, physical education, outdoor activities, tutoring, and service learning projects. We have spent the last 12 years learning while serving. As our capacity increases, we are able to expand our reach. Together we can and will meet the needs of our youth.
