My name is Max, and I am the Coordinator for the Onehunga Crew.
If you’re reading this you’re probably wondering what Raise Up is, what we get up to, and whether it’s something you could see yourself doing.
Here at Mt. Albert, we’re all about making positive change and having fun while doing it. From organizing mental health workshops to dodgeball tournaments and beach clean-ups our work varies quite a bit but it’s always a good time.
So if chilling out, creating some awesome events for your community and developing some great leadership skills sounds like something you could see yourself being a part of, flick me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can look to line something up.
Personally, I love traveling, my sports (especially basketball, American footy, ufc and football to name a few), and get a massive kick out of making a difference in the lives of those around me, especially those of our community and youth. While I am an American citizen, I’m a kiwi through and through, born in Dunedin and growing up as a Jafa. I come from a background in finance and management and am currently in the last year of a Bachelor’s in Business majoring in Management.
The team, myself, and the community are looking forward to having you onboard and we’re excited for all the great work we’ll be able to do together.
"“The best thing Raise Up did for me was turn me from a follower into a leader. At meetings and events, if there are issues that need to be solved I jump in and fix them rather than stand back and let other people do it.” "
