Words from your Coordinator

Welcome to the Ōtautahi Raise Up Crew! My name’s Brittany and I am the coordinator for Christchurch. I was raised right here in the 03 but I have spent lots of time living and working overseas.

Things you gotta know about me: I love reading, photography, hiking, movie nights, and my family. I do not like eating coriander or really spicy food. I am also the godmother to a very cute dog who I talk about way too much!

I’m super passionate about working with young people and doing good in the community. My goal is to create a space here at Raise Up where all are welcome and heard. You will have the chance to develop your leadership skills, plan cool events for your friends, plus eat lots of free food!

Come check out Raise Up if you’re interested in making life-long friends, running awesome events and helping out your community. We would love to see you there!
