Words from the Coordinator

Kia Ora whanau, 

My name is Rylee and I am the facilitator for the Ellerslie Crew (WOOOP!)

A little bit about me, I'm 5'3 (I know, i'm short) I was born in New Zealand but I'm from a Samoan family, so I try and express my culture in all things i do as its super important to me. 

I like to cook so I'm a foodie (I can't bake so lol), I love the outdoors and I love a good dad joke.

I've been a part of the YMCA for nearly 5 years, I have done mostly all the jobs besides fitness (ya gal doesn't like running) but Im super excited to have this opportunity to meet you all and plan some pretty epic events! my goal for this crew is to create one big family and help you grow as an individual so if you are keen to sign up, go for it!!! 🙂

Upper Hutt Update 2017

Upper Hutt has had a busy and eventful year making themselves known for there willingness to be an active part in their communities. They have had much going on over the year from Hackathon, where they were given the opportunity to pitch and present an idea to an event committee, members of the public and members of council. They were one of three selected and got the opportunity to see there idea of a 'house of horrors' come to life with the support of there community. Along with helping when needed and supporting local clean ups and building up the youth in there community. Congrats Upper Hutt on an awesome year!
