YMCA Auckland has become one of the latest signatories to the Youth Employment Pledge - an initiative by Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development (ATEED) aimed at getting more young talent into work and career pathways.
Kimm Rae never thought she
would be the recipient of a major award,
but that all changed in October when she
was surprised with something special.
Kimm is part of the Raise Up crew
at Massey Leisure Centre managed
by YMCA. The Raise Up crew is made
up of teenagers who volunteer their
time to help organise and run events.
When she was asked to help out at an
important YMCA annual awards night,
she was more than happy to help.
The Massey Raise Up crew is a committee of young
volunteers who initiate, plan and organise a range of activities, workshops and
events for local youth. They require funding to create a youth-focused space
for young people to study and learn, connect and interact
