#What do the Red Frogs actually do?

Red Frogs is a support program that exists to serve and safeguard young people. Today’s youth live in a culture dominated by alcohol, drugs, social media and other pressures that can lead to dangerous and life-altering behaviours. That's where we come in. 

We believe in shining a light on a generation and with your help, we can make a difference to a son, a daughter, a student, a friend - our future. For more information on how we do this or to get involved, check out our programs.

What We Do

#How did Red Frogs start?

It all started in 1997 when Red Frogs Australia founder Andy Gourley (then youth pastor at Citipointe Church) hit Schoolies Week on the Gold Coast with his skateboarding mates and realised the need for a designated sober person at the massive drinking parties.

Check out the 'True Story' on our History page.
