Charles Rask

Youth Navigator
Joined team May 2019

Charlie enjoys meeting different people and being able to help the Community Advance.

"It is a privilege to be working alongside rangatahi and whānau, supporting them to do their best in life" is what Charlie enjoys most about his role as a Youth Navigator at Te Kupenga Hauora - Ahuriri. "Do your BEST and settle for nothing less!", is his message for the whānau he works with.

Outside of mahi Charlie enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two beautiful daughters, who he says are his greatest loves and achievements in life so far. Charlie and his wife lead the BBM (Butter Bean Movement) exercise groups/classes in both Hastings and Napier each week and are ready with a warm, friendly welcome to new participants to their BBM classes.
