In September 2014, the Geelong Youth Newstart Teens, together with Mentors and Victoria Police, took part in one of the worlds hardest treks – the Kokoda Trail.
The trek challenged physical and mental toughness, but also taught us about respect, discipline, perseverance and appreciation. We were educated further about the Kokoda campaign, and the Diggers who fought in the 39th Battalion. A lucky few even got to experience their very own Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels. A truly memorable and life changing experience.
Courage – Endurance – Mateship – Sacrifice
– Angela Ling (2014 mentor)
