My names Caitrin and I’m the coordinator for Puketāpapa! I moved to Auckland from Seattle in 2018 to complete my degree in psychology and sociology- and I’ve been here ever since!
I have always loved working with young people and being with Raise Up is no different. Our crew is made up of lots of different personalities, talents, and goals. We all work together to put on events by youth, for youth and to create a positive change in the Puketāpapa community. Most of all, we have fun! Seeing how creative, passionate, and driven our crew members are, and the contributions they make to their communities, is just the coolest.
If giving back to your community, making connections, and putting on awesome events for youth in your area sounds like a bit of you- come say hey!
"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.”"
