Exciting programmes for youth

The YMCA has always been focused on youth development. Here at the Hawke's Bay YMCA we have some exciting programmes and opportunities coming up.

Raise Up is getting underway here in the Bay! Join the Raise Up Hawkes Bay Crew! click here  

Established in 2002 in Auckland, Raise Up is the Y’s Youth Development programme. This programme is built by young people, for young people. Come into the Raise Up space and you will learn so much about yourselves and others!  

Raise Up will guide young people through event management, community outreach projects and leadership opportunities. Young people will have an opportunity to be heard and given a chance to make impactful changes in their communities.  

Raise Up activities include a mixture of regular weekly activities, events, workshops, and personal development options.  The interests of youth in our region will inform what we do as the Raise Up crew including activities based on sports, music, dance, fashion, leadership training, art and much more. Raise Up is designed to offer young people a safe and positive environment in which to relax, socialize and achieve their goals.  

If you are interested and keen to serve your community, be a role model and improve your leadership skills then Raise Up to the challenge! Go to our website to learn more www.raiseup.co.nz. We’ll be in touch and hopefully have you on your way to being a crew member!
