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.
Kia Orana I am Sarah, I have been at Youthtown for three years and had many different roles.
My main focus is organizing our EPIC Break-away programmes for young people in the school holidays and during the term, I coordinate and deliver our learner licence classes, study classes and many more programmes to support youth be the best they can be. When I am not working I am usually hanging with friends finding all the good coffee spots in Christchurch!
My name's Zac and I’m a programme coordinator at Youthtown. Outside of work I have a large sporting background with Rugby League being my main appeal. I’m a recent graduate at the University of Canterbury and dig any opportunity to incorporate the sports I love into my day to day job.
