Student placement and work experience opportunities

Hobsons Bay Youth Services team includes a range of youth professionals including youth workers, youth mental health professionals, youth counsellors, administrators, program and project officers and support staff. We work at a local level with young people aged between 12 and 25 years of age.

We believe that having access to meaningful work experience and student placement opportunities is important to helping individuals on their career pathways.

Through our youth services program we provide: 

  • Student Placements: Tertiary and further education work experiences
  • Work experience placements: High school aged work experiences.

Further information on each placement is detailed below.
