About the Role
The Opening the Doors Foundation addresses the severe educational disadvantage still being experienced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, by providing assistance so that they are able to choose and successfully maintain a positive education environment for their children.
The Foundation provides grants towards the funding of educational costs not otherwise funded from government or other educational funding sources to cover costs such as school uniforms, books, school camps, excursions, levies (IT and other), health and wellbeing activities, leadership opportunities, music tuition, curriculum extension program (CEP) and other school associated costs.
Founded in 2001 the Foundation financially helped 32 students at Catholic schools, in 2003, the Foundation received DGR status and expanded support to Aboriginal families choosing any non-government educational setting. Over the years numbers steadily increased and in the 2017 school year the Foundation supported 757 students.
We operate with minimal staff which enables more funds for students.
We are looking for a committed volunteers who can provide Administrative support during our busiest period processing student applications for 2018. Ideally we would love to have Admin support two to three days for the next three months.
