Want to get involved in your community? Raise Up is a group of up to 20 young people who are passionate about doing good in their community and creating awesome ways for young people to come together and have some fun.
We have started a Mangere crew and would love to have you join us! We meet once a week from 4:30-6:30 pm to plan upcoming events, workshops and community outreach’s, play some sport and EAT (free feeds every week)! Joining the crew is also an awesome opportunity to gain leadership skills and experience as well as building your CV and learning a bit about life ahead!

My name is Nina and I am the Coordinator for the Mangere and Papatoetoe Raise Up Crew.
I am originally from Philippines, but for the past 20 or so years I have called New Zealand my home. I have been bought up in East Auckland, however I am ready to tackle the South side and engage with the Youth out here! I am very much into my sports and being super active, if you ever have a football (soccer) ball handy, kick it my way and I'll do a few juggles for ya! In my spare time I love hanging out with whanau and friends, as well as running after my super goofy Retriever at the park!
I'm all about the young people and would love to provide an open space where they feel safe, are connected to others and most importantly having FUN! What better way than to join a Raise Up Crew! Not only that, but you will be able to give back to the South Auckland Community by running events, workshops and even weekly activities. Youth voice always will have an impact on others, I would love nothing more than to support you through this, while also helping you empower the youth in the community to come together as one! If you and your friends are interested, please don't hesitate to reach out! Hopefully see you all soon!
