Working for Victoria initiative

From working directly with young people through intensive case work support, to creating leadership opportunities for young people to be heard, we are constantly looking for ways to put young people at the centre of this change-making process. Find out more about student placements
CMY can assist youth sector organisations to create placement opportunities for students who are undertaking Youth Work, Community Services and Community Development degrees and diplomas, to ensure they are able to do the 100 or 250 hours placement that they must undertake to complete their qualification.
This is a real opportunity for a win-win – the youth sector can have the additional (free) capacity to undertake projects or complete work, and the students get the experience they need in the sector. If this is this something that your organisation may be interested in, please contact Student Placements Coordinator, Amy Chen at firstname.lastname@example.org to have a chat about it.
