Kids Under Cover supports vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness by building studios
There are many ways to get involved and help at-risk young people and their families.
On this incredible adventure, you will take on a physically demanding trek through the Australian Outback, raising vital funds to help Kids Under Cover prevent youth homelessness.
From 15–21 July 2022, you will discover the Red Centre, hiking the iconic Larapinta Trail. Across the traditional lands of the Arrernte people, you will explore sacred sites, including Ormiston Gorge, Euro Ridge and Standley Chasm.
One of the most popular treks in Australia, the Larapinta Trail is as sacred as it is remote. Known for its breathtaking landscapes and mountainous terrain, the trail’s rocky outcrops form a striking backdrop to scenic paths that cut passages through awe-inspiring gorges and expansive plains.
As expert guides lead you over rugged mountain peaks and through awe-inspiring gorges, you’ll forge life-long friendships with like-minded people – all dedicated to making a difference to the lives of young people at risk of homelessness.
The funds you raise as part of the Hike for Youth Homelessness can help Kids Under Cover to build a two-bedroom studio for two young people at risk of homelessness. With your support, we can strengthen their connection to family, community and education, and make a lasting difference in their lives.
We hope you can join us on our Hike for Youth Homelessness and share once-in-a-lifetime memories with like-minded travellers while supporting vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness.
You’ll walk away with treasured memories and the knowledge that you were part of something life-changing – for you and Australia’s at-risk young people!
