Hey I'm Conin,
I started my journey with Raise Up back in 2010 when I was helping run the sound and lighting for the monthly dance parties. Since then I started working for the YMCA as a gymnastics instructor and holiday programme leader.
In 2015 the opportunity to become the Raise Up coordinator at Massey came up and I grasped it with both hands. During my time with Raise Up I have come to realise that working with youth is my passion and I thoroughly enjoy getting to meet heaps of awesome young people.
If I can make at least one positive impact on people I work with then I’m happy.
"Confidence is a big thing I’ve got from Raise Up, along with developing social communication. I’ve been with Raise Up for five years as it’s really helped me be present in the community … and talk to people in both formal and informal environments."
