Young people from YMCA’s youth development programme – Raise Up – are showing the power of teenagers during national Youth Week, 19-27 May, with a series of events for youth and by youth across Auckland.
Sixty-five teenagers from YMCA’s youth development programme – Raise Up – converged on Camp Adair in Auckland’s Hunua Ranges in mid-April for three days of leadership and confidence building activities.
The YMCA Auckland and Waikato network has taken a proactive step to reaffirm its commitment to child safety by becoming New Zealand’s first accredited Safeguarding Children organisation through the internationally-renowned Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF).
Our youth crew, Raise Up, had a big year in 2016 and they finished it off in style with a fantastic Graduation Day held in Auckland City. Read the article to hear a bit about the fun activities they got up to.
