Upper Hutt Raise Up Crew

Upper Hutt Raise Up Crew

The Upper Hutt Raise Up crew have been running for a little over a year and meet every Wednesday afternoon at 4:00pm, at the YMCA Gym on Somme Road. Our crew consists of 10 active members who attend local colleges around Upper Hutt. The Crew are exploring leadership skills, marketing skills, promotional skills, and working together as a diverse crew. In alignment with the YMCA values, we promote health and well being, to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities. 

Our purpose is to host events and workshops that will appeal to our local youth and attract them to be involved in our youth initiatives. The Upper Hutt Crew have attended a number of community clean up events, one at a local primary school and another helping with the clean up of Petone Beach. A big event the crew have coming up is our very own house of horrors, which has already received positive community attention and support.

To gear up for this event we have been hosting successful Gore Makeup Workshops, where young people can come along and give it a go! The crew have created a promo video for the house of horrors event which has been published to Facebook, which gave them skills in acting, filming, directing, editing with sound effects and music.
