The KRUNK Movement is a youth micro-enterprise designed as a production company. Students use the elements of Hip-Hop to communicate messages to teens and pre-teens about mental and physical health.


COL Jazz

COL Jazz was the first Center of Life youth program. COL Jazz is student-centered learning and engages children and youth as instrumental musicians. Through COL Jazz we teach music theory and other essential fundamentals as we prepare our students to perform.



Fusion presents a fresh way to approach out-of-school learning. Fusion is a family-engagement program that enables parents and guardians to participate in out-of-school academic help with their children.



CROSSOVER uses athletic competition, strong leadership from life-long Hazelwood residents, and play to mentor participants in accountability, teamwork and discipline. Adults from the community serve as role models and mentors for successful life choices.
