Young Adult Cancer Canada


Shave for the Brave facts:

  • Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) is a charity dedicated to building a community that provides information, support, skills, and opportunities for young adults dealing with cancer between the ages of 15 and 39.
  • YACC offers cost-free, web-based programs such as the 24/7 Online Community and Goaltender, a survivor-ship care program; and face-to-face programs such as Survivor Conference, Retreat Yourself, Retreat Yourself Adventure, and Localife to provide people with the support needed to move beyond their cancer experiences and make the rest of their lives the best of their lives.  The money raised through events like the Shave for the Brave funds these programs.
  • Shave for the Brave began in St. John’s in 2006 and has grown to almost 10,000 heads shaved and $2.7M raised to date.
  • People Shave for the Brave in nearly every province across Canada.  Some cities organize Community Shaves; however, people are invited to host their own Shaves at their schools, offices, or on their own.
  • Keyin College has partnered with YACC to support their effort by providing the services of our Hairstylist students to shave heads at schools across Newfoundland!  We have also committed to recruit shavers and raise funds to help support this program.

“We would like to thank Keyin College for choosing to celebrate its 30 year milestone by supporting Ronald McDonald House Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Gerry Beresford Chair, Board of Directors. “Their financial support will help us build the House and their volunteer commitment will help make it a Home,” he said.

The goal of Ronald McDonald House is to make children receiving medical care and their families feel as comfortable and at home as possible. Home-cooked meals, warm and comfortable bedrooms, welcoming common areas, and play rooms for kids all help foster this type of environment. At the end of a hard day, families need a place to relax and rest their heads. A Ronald McDonald House is that place.

The staff and students of Keyin College worked very hard to fundraise for Ronald McDonald House and were proud to present the final payment representing their efforts. Keyin is very excited to fulfull the volunteer commitment of 2500 hours to help in the operation of the Ronald McDonald House in Newfoundland and Labrador. It’s a great feeling for the staff and students to know that they will make a difference in the lives of children and families from across our province who will come to call Ronald McDonald House home.

Ronald McDonald House will offer a home-away-from-home for families from across Newfoundland and Labrador providing comfortable and affordable accommodations while their children receive care and treatment at the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre. www.rmhnl.ca

Cape Breton University


Keyin College is the first Independent College in Newfoundland and Labrador to announce a partnership with Cape Breton University enabling Keyin’s graduates to obtain 50% of the required credits towards a CBU degree.

Graduates of Keyin’s Business Management, and Hospitality Management programs will be awarded half of the required credits towards their Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Tourism and Hospitality Management (BTHM) degrees.

In June 2012, Keyin College and Cape Breton University signed a second articulation agreement. The new agreement will see students who have completed Keyin College’s 2 year Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Diploma program qualify to receive credits towards the Cape Breton University Bachelor of Health Sciences (Public Health) Degree. For more information on this degree program, please go to:


In addition to the formal articulation agreement, Keyin College and Cape Breton University have signed a supplementary agreement which we anticipate providing further options for our graduates. In this agreement, CBU will, pending sufficient enrolment, deliver the core courses locally that are required to receive your BBA – General Degree. Through a combination of online courses and locally taught courses, students have the potential to receive their degree without leaving Newfoundland and Labrador. Please contact a Keyin College near you for more details.

Cape Breton University is home to more than 3,200 students offering a range of academic programs that assist students in meeting educational, cultural and economic goals.
