Word from your Coordinator

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.

Teen volunteer has a great future ahead

Kimm Rae never thought she would be the recipient of a major award, but that all changed in October when she was surprised with something special. Kimm is part of the Raise Up crew at Massey Leisure Centre managed by YMCA. The Raise Up crew is made up of teenagers who volunteer their time to help organise and run events. When she was asked to help out at an important YMCA annual awards night, she was more than happy to help.

"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."
