I originally connected with MKM as a teacher. One of my students needed help with hwk and through some research I found KaracterKeys, MasterKey's afterschool program. While communicating with the director about my student, we developed a relationship and she invited me to be part of the board. Since then, MKM has grown tremendously. There are several "branches" that reach out the community in an effort to provide the "keys" to important doors such as education, nutrition and spiritual growth. Additionally, building relationships is at the core of MKM. Every MKM volunteer has a heart for service and thus sacrifically gives of him/herself.
