What is the KFC Youth Foundation?

For more than 40,000 young Aussies working in our restaurants, KFC will be their first training school, their second family and the place where they can be themselves outside of school and home. We proudly provide our people with personal development, life skills, training initiatives and wellbeing support to help them be their best selves, make a difference and have fun.
