SAM is an interactive learning experience for
13–18-year-olds that takes a look at very real, and often scary situations
related to alcohol and other drug use – and teaches young people how to
prevent, recognise and respond to such emergencies.
YMCA Auckland’s commitment to building stronger kids,
stronger families and stronger communities is made possible with the generous
support of its funders, and a number of Auckland Local Boards are helping to
make all the difference.
New Zealand Fashion Week is an iconic event on Kiwi
calendars, and an important fixture of YMCA Auckland’s Youth Development
programme, Raise Up. Simply put, Walk The Line is an innovative platform where
young designers nationwide are able to put their creations on a world stage.
At the end of the April school holidays, more than 140
young people involved in Raise Up, YMCA Auckland’s leadership programme for
young people, descended on the iconic YMCA Camp Adair facility for the 11th
annual Youth Development Camp.
YMCA has been running youth development in New Zealand for over 150 years. The Raise Up programme is the YMCA's current youth development programme and covers all areas that cater for 13-18 year olds including events, workshops, activities, youth fitness and youth volunteering.
