Massey Raise Up has secured over $38k in funding for a new Youth Hub to be located at Massey Leisure Centre managed by YMCA.

A rapid population increase and injection of new families into the Massey area has seen a growing need for more designated youth spaces.

YMCA’s Raise Up youth programme will help address the situation by developing a Youth Hub. The new space will improve YMCA and other groups’ capacity to provide valuable services that meet the complex and diverse needs of local youth.

The $38k funding or the Youth Hub was attained via an online public voting competition called the 'Million Dollar Mission' run by West Auckland's The Trusts. Over 30 finalists, including Massey Raise Up, were in the running to secure a share of $1 million of funding provided by The Trusts. All funding has now been allocated in the online competition. 

The YMCA thanks all supporters who voted for the Youth Hub in the Million Dollar Mission.
