Volunteer with Us
Our volunteer recruitment round has just finished. Our next intake will be approx July 2019. Please use the application form below. You will be contacted closer to the intake time.
Open Doors Youth Service relies on volunteers to bring diversity, experience, maturity and fun to the space and can provide great opportunities for skill building, professional and social development and giving back to the community.
Volunteering with us is a wonderful way to meet people in the community and represent an organisation who takes pride in what they stand for and priorities providing a safe and inclusive environment for our young people.
There are various opportunities for volunteers such as:
– Episodic volunteering (events and specific workshops)
– Virtual volunteering (web design, newsletters etc)
– Corporate Volunteering (Corporate Social Responsibilities *CSR*, reportable measures, pro bono)
– Heritage Volunteers (usually attending weekly/consistently for a specific role)
If you believe that you have skills that could attribute to our wonderful team here, please complete the Volunteer Expression of Interest below and send it to email@example.com
We receive a lot of interest for volunteering and those who are shortlisted will be contacted closer to the next induction date. Shortlisted applicants will have an interview and those who are successful will be required to complete an induction with the service before commencing their role.
Unfortunately there are currently no student placement vacancies available at Open Doors Youth Service. The next available placement date is approximately July 2019.
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 LGBTIQAP+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy young people and their families.
Due to Open Doors being a popular place for placement, if you wish to gain experience working with LGBTIQAP+ 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.
You must have a blue card and current first aid and CPR certification.
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 along with a copy of your first aid/CPR and Working with Children Check (blue card) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will only accept students who take the time to provide a professional cover letter and resume. Be sure to include all relevant requirements of your placement including the starting date of placement and the number of hours and days you would be available for placement where possible.
