“I am a Year 5 Teacher at Aspley State School and have attended a number of Kokoda trail Development days over many years. I find the activities highly motivating and valuable for our students each year. It is particularly useful when the children are planning their approach for becoming Student Leaders in Year 6. I would highly recommend this Excursion from an educator’s perspective”

“We have been working alongside Character Builders for a number of years now. We have found them to be a reliable, cost-effective and an enjoyable company to work with. The students have gained great insights into ‘Stepping Up, Stepping Back and Encouraging Others’. All of the activities are engaging and really challenge the students to step out of their comfort zone. Character Builders offers a differentiated program that caters to all of our students’ needs. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Character Builders to look forward to many more adventures with them. ”

“As a company Character Builders promises to engage, motivate and help create unity, respect, self-esteem and confidence; this was definitely our experience and I will be using them again in the near future.”

Darryl Mulholland - YMCA Clem Jones

“Character Builders provides a thought-provoking and emotionally challenging leadership program that succeeds in harnessing the power of storytelling and shared enjoyment. Students find the courage to be vulnerable. In doing so, they emerge as a more understanding, cohesive and potentially powerful team, ready to take on the challenge of school leadership.”

Jane Elliot - Clayfield College

“Character builders is a company I highly recommend for working with school students, especially around the issues of developing relationships and friendships amongst teenage girls. Damon and his staff have great insight into the issues affecting young people and the skills to enable the youth of today to see themselves and their interactions with others in new and positive ways.”

Wendy Mayes – Ipswich Girls Grammar

“Working with Damon and his Character Builders team has given our students the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills. Their programs highlight the key attributes of student leaders to allow them to identify their own strengths and weaknesses. All our students walk away from these sessions energised and with a repertoire of new skills.”
