This is an exciting opportunity to play a hands on role in designing an Education & Career Support Program.
Just when life should be full of possibilities, cancer can crash into a young person’s world and shatter everything. Canteen provides young people impacted by cancer, and their parents, with access to a team of Allied Health Professionals who deliver programs, counselling and a range of other group and individual support activities.
The team at Canteen assist these young people to access the support they need to develop and maintain the skills and confidence to live healthy and happy lives.
This is an exciting opportunity to play a hands on role in designing an Education & Career Support Program that have a significant impact on the lives of young people affected by cancer. This rewarding opportunity is part time, 22.5 hours per week, working in our Adelaide office.
