We passionately believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to develop to their full physical and mental potential and enjoy a healthy quality of life.
Unfortunately, not everyone is able to achieve this for a variety of reasons like financial limitations, family circumstances, disability or environmental challenge
To address this situation, YMCA has an active Social Arm which supports young people to participate in the Raise Up programmes and enjoy the long term benefits that this experience gives them.
As a not for profit organisation YMCA Auckland is committed to re-investing back into local communities. Every year YMCA invests over $350,000 to deliver Raise Up in 11 locations across Auckland and Hamilton.
We are incredibly grateful to our funders and partners whose continued support has enabled us to expand our programme into more locations and ensured we can continue to provide high-quality programming.
