Words from your Coordinator

Kia Ora, my name is Emily and I am the new coordinator for the Invercargill crew! 

Originally from the Waikato, I moved to Invercargill to study a Bachelor in Sport and Exercise. I have worked for the YMCA for over 2 years in several different roles, including being an OSCAR childcare supervisor and group fitness instructor. Here at YMCA South, we are passionate about getting our rangatahi active and provide opportunities for them to grow, and develop new skills. 

Our Raise Up goal is to establish strong relationships within the community and make Raise Up a well-known programme in Southland. I am willing to listen, have a knack for event planning, and a passion for helping others. If you like to have fun, are open to learning, and want to make friends come and join the crew!!
