Technology One

Technology One are passionate supporters of the Kokoda Youth Foundation and particularly of our youth programs that cater to at risk and disengaged youth such as our On The Right Track program. They have also provided numerous volunteers to man checkpoints at our Kokoda Challenge events while also participating in the 48km course.

Getaway Trekking and Adventures

Getaway Trekking & Adventures is proud of its long-term relationship with Kokoda Youth Foundation as a provider of peak experiences. Since 2014, they have supported hundreds of KCYP participants on their Kokoda Trek. They have the privilege of being witness to the significant personal growth that occurs as a result of this program and their ultimate Kokoda journey.

International travel restrictions saw a 2021 switch to domestic travel and the inaugural Packers Ghost Trek in Far North Queensland. The kids trek through rugged and varied terrain in a harsh climate, working and connecting with pack donkeys supporting the group. Aside from the physical challenge, the unfolding of relationships between animal and trekker, and the gradual increase in confidence and belief is something to behold.
