The Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge (KYLC) is a peer group leadership program established by the RSL & Services Clubs Association in 2004 and overseen by the KYLC Benevolent Fund. The program was developed by Charlie Lynn of 'Adventure Kokoda'.
The KYLC Program is designed for young community leaders, young people with strong family military connections and management staff with leadership potential in the NSW club industry or suppliers to that industry with the view to strengthen their skills and attitudes to the challenges of management.
The program involves an arduous 10 day trek across the original Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea, presentations at significant battle sites and discussions on sacrifice, courage, mateship, endurance and leadership. It provides participants with a practical leadership experience based on the achievements and sacrifice of our diggers during the Kokoda campaign.
This year, Hornsby RSL is proud to be sponsoring 20 year old Sarah Bourne for the 2017 Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge. We are also pleased to announce we participating in the world premiere screening of the new documentary, Kokoda...the Spirit Lives. Join us on Tuesday 29th August from 7pm for the free screening in The Showroom.
