Trinity Leadership Challenge
The Trinity Leadership Challenge began in 2011 with a student’s dream of following in the footsteps of many brave Australians along the Kokoda Trail. The program was so successful in 2011 that it has developed into an annual expedition. Students train for the physical element of the challenge, learn about themselves and others in team building and leadership workshops, participate in community service initiative, and raise money to fund the project.
In 2008, three students who took part in Trinity's annual Northern Territory trip to the remote community of Minyerri, became concerned by the dichotomy that exists between University and Trinity life, and the limited opportunities for Indigenous children to be able to attend high school in remote areas. To bridge this gap, the students, now Trinity alumni, created Teachabout, a not-for-profit school holiday program designed to boost long-term educational outcomes for Indigenous students by targeting the crucial transition between primary school and high school.
