Auckland is our playground

Are you aged 13 - 18 and keen to get active and have fun with friends?

Raise Up Weekly Activities are free initiatives for youth where we offer community spaces for non-structured (free time) active play, sports, casual and social spaces.

Our unique environment provides a space to motivate and empower young people to "give it a go" - we want you to try new skills, meet new friends and have fun. We encourage creativity and imagination through play to help develop your physical, cognitive and emotional strength and team building skills in a fun and social way.

There's no need to register, just come along and join in the fun!

Raise Up drop in is funded by the YMCA and Sport NZ
