Little Dreamers is working to improve the quality of life for Young Carers and Special Siblings across the country.
Our vision? To ensure that every single Young Carer around the world is supported by someone or something by 2030.
We are Australia’s leading Young Carer organisation, supporting young people between 4 – 25 years across six support programs. Over the past nine years, we’ve granted over 200 Dream Experiences, facilitated 13 school holiday programs, and significantly improved the quality of life for thousands of Young Carers and their families.
Whatever the support service, a common thread runs through everything we do - that young people should have access to the childhood that everyone deserves. Every Little Dreamers program works towards supporting Young Carers outside of their caring role, ensuring that these young people have the same access to opportunities that their non-caring peers have.
With rapid growth, Little Dreamers is looking to expand our Dream Team and for our newest addition we are specifically looking for a Program Coordinator to launch our team in Sydney.
The Program Coordinator’s role will be to facilitate the running of our Dream Experience and Mentoring programs, as well as coordinating and attending our Holiday Programs in Sydney. You will be operating as part of the wider program team, with a focus on Holiday Programs, granting Dream Experiences to Young Carers and matching them with appropriate mentors.
This role aims to focus facilitating programs on the ground in Sydney as part of the wider program management team primarily based in Melbourne. Reporting through to the Head of Programs, this role requires creativity, initiative and an ‘out-of-the-box’ attitude to leading change and creating impactful opportunities for Young Carers and their families. You will have autonomy to affect change within the organisation, developing strategies from the ground up and work to a budget with lots of room to grow within Little Dreamers.
* For more specifics about the role please see the position description attached.
When you join the Little Dreamers Team, you join a community of people committed to making a difference. We come together with shared values, passion and a collaborative culture. We are currently a small team that is growing rapidly access to development opportunities. We operate within a leadership structure that accepts and embraces everyone’s ideas and hard work to create the world that we want to see for Young Carers.
This is a part-time position classified as a Social and Community Services employee under the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award 2010 (MA000100). We offer a part time salary above the award. We require a 12-month commitment to the role however as this is an incredible opportunity we hope that you will stay beyond this timeframe and continue to grow with Little Dreamers.
