Become a Volunteer Leader within KCYP
The Kokoda Challenge Youth Program (KCYP) is a 14 month life skills program for 15-17 year olds, affectionately known as our ‘Kokoda Kids’, who come from all walks of life and every segment of society. We passionately believe there is no difference between those who are expected to fail and those who are expected to achieve – except for opportunity and the right support.
KCYP is not possible without our incredible volunteer leaders who help deliver the program and make a real difference to the lives of our Kokoda Kids. Do you want to join the Kokoda Family?

Connecting with young people and learning from others, helping each other grow, making life long friends and unforgettable memories.
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL GROWTH

The chance to tackle the 96km Gold Coast Kokoda Challenge and travel to Papua New Guinea to trek the Kokoda Track and visit local villages.
BEING A PART OF A LIKEMINDED COMMUNITY
The Kokoda Spirit amongst our KCYP Leaders and Kokoda Kids is often described as a true community. You'll have the opportunity to connect with link-minds to reach a common goal.
