Proudly Supporting: Raise Up

Being a teenager can be tough and during these challenging times we believe it is even more important than ever to help young people connect and to support and empower youth so they can thrive. Raise Up, the YMCAs youth development programme run by youth for youth, does just this.

As a strength-based programme, Raise Up gives young people the skills and confidence they need to thrive and achieve their goals. Raise Up crews are voluntary committees of local youth who are committed to making a positive contribution to their communities. Our youth crews organise community events, workshops, volunteer and development opportunities which reflect the interests and needs of local youth. Each year, over 20,000 teens who participate in our youth-led events, workshops and development opportunities are positively impacted by Raise Up.
