Words from your Coordinator

Kia Ora, my name is Ben and I am the coordinator for the up-and-coming Timaru Raise Up Crew.

I was born and raised in Timaru and have led youth initiatives since the age of 15. Recently, I started working at the YMCA which has allowed me to begin this journey of starting Raise Up here in South Canterbury. I am super passionate about helping young people reach their full potential through mentorship, leadership training, and a supportive community.

Our goal, for Raise Up Timaru, is to build the next generation of leaders in South Canterbury who have a passion to serve and empower others and create a better community around them. If you enjoy having fun, making new friends, helping others, learning new skills, gaining confidence, and planning awesome events that everyone can enjoy, this Raise Up Crew is the place for you!
