Welcome to Raise Up, it’s awesome that you are interested in being a part of the Puketāpapa Community!
My name is Chelsey, I am the coordinator for the Mt Albert Crew and have been for the last year. The crew and I would be keen to have you involved; we have awesome events always happening and it is a great way to make friends and network with local community groups and the local board.
Our crew is made up of people who are all very different, but work together to see some positive change in our community. Our main purpose is not only to create events and workshops but also to give back where we can and inspire others to pay it forward. We are loud and passionate, enthusiastic and hilarious so don’t think twice, join us for an experience that will help you build your future and have fun doing it!
"I have definitely gained a lot of confidence. I’m still not the most confident person, but my confidence has skyrocketed because of Raise Up and I’m able to do a lot more things, things that I didn’t think I could do.”"
