Volunteers are integral to ACON and we function as an organisation because of all their generous time, good will and hard work. Volunteering is a great way to meet other likeminded people, get an insight into ACON and the work we do, and to contribute towards making our community better.
No matter who you are or what your skill level is, there are lots of ways to get involved. We also offer a range of roles that require specific qualifications and training to get involved in.
ACON is seeking experienced or newly qualified volunteer counsellors to work within our LGBTI Counselling Program.
Volunteer counsellors see clients one night a week, providing one-to-one, short term therapeutic counselling to clients. They may draw upon a range of modalities or methodologies in their therapeutic work that complements the philosophy of harm reduction and a person-centred approach.
Volunteer counsellors are provided with monthly group clinical supervision and two professional development sessions each year to increase their capacity to work with HIV and LGBTI clients.
Applications close 31 August 2018
