Student Placements

There have been a number of students who have contributed time and energy into Open Doors since it’s beginnings.

Students are a valuable and important part of the work we do at Open Doors. Not only do they provide support and activities to young people who access Open Doors, they also learn specialist skills in supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender and queer young people and their families.

Due to Open Doors being a popular place for placement, if you wish to gain experience working with LGBT young people it is best to apply early. However as we are a small organisation, we only have the capacity to offer a limited number of placements at any one time.  So please keep this in mind when applying.

Students will need to participate in an interview prior to being accepted.

If you are a student studying social work, social science or another degree equivalent course and you are interested in a placement at Open Doors please contact us by submitting a cover letter and resume to referrals@opendoors.net.au .
