Raigan Howard - Hello Hurricane Foundation

Raigan has spent 10 years as a professional youth worker in the Geelong region, specialising in high challenge activities and leadership development. After years of experience working for City of Greater Geelong and in partnership with many local primary and secondary schools, Raigan became a fully qualified personal trainer and is launching Hello Hurricane, with a passion to see young people empowered through effective and integrated development approaches.

Raigan is currently the owner of Ludus Elite Functional Training and Gear, through which he operates a private gym and retail business. He previously spent four years in the Australian Army (Res) and was deployed to the Solomon Islands in 2010.

Since 2011, Raigan has volunteered with Red Frogs Australia as the Lorne Location Leader. His team of around 50 ‘froggers’ provide harm reduction programming to the 3000 school leavers each year, and work collaboratively with local police, YSAS and Surf Coast Shire.

When he’s not working on Hello Hurricane, his main focus is being a husband of the year and soon to be father with his wife, Erin, who are expecting their first in September 2017.
