Youthtown christchurch manager
South Island Programmes Manager

Kia ora I’m Richard and I am the South Island Programmes Manager. I have a background in education as a Primary and Intermediate School principal and have been involved in volunteer Youth work. I looked for new career challenges working in health advocacy with the Haemophilia Foundation and now I am back to my roots helping to develop and support children, youth and our Youthtown staff as they develop new skills and passions. Youthtown is a great place to be a part of as a staff member or programme participant. I am looking forward to our continued growth as a Youthtown community.
