Before you volunteer with Red Frogs in Queensland you must be a current Blue Card Holder, which allows you to work with children and young people.
Blue Card Requirements (QLD)
#how to apply
Application/Renewal of a Blue Card:
If you wish to volunteer with Red Frogs Australia for Schoolies Week and do not have a Blue Card, you MUST submit a Blue Card application through the Blue Card Services Portal. As of the 1st of September, 2020, Blue Card Services will no longer accept paper applications.
If you already have a Blue Card through your local church or workplace, you will need to link your card to Red Frogs Australia before the 12th of November, 2021. You can do this by emailing email@example.com a copy of your valid Blue Card and photo ID, or if you have not yet received your physical card, a copy of your photo ID and your Blue Card Services account number. You will receive your account number from Blue Card Services once you have created an account through the Blue Card Services Portal.
If you are a Queensland Registered Teacher/Queensland Police Officer, you must submit an Exemption application through the Blue Card Services Portal. The Exemption Card will then need to be linked to Red Frogs Australia. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org a copy of your valid Exemption Card and photo ID, or, if you have not yet received your physical card, a copy of your photo ID and your Blue Card Services account number. You will receive your account number from Blue Card Services once you have created an account through the Blue Card Services Portal.
Please note: If your Exemption Card does not have an expiry date, you must renew it by 31 August 2023 or it will automatically expire.
- At Schoolies, you may be asked to provide your Blue Card and photo ID. Please ensure you have a card with you on the day of your check-in.
- All enquiries about your blue card are to be made to the Commission For Children & Young People on 1800 113 611.
- You can still apply to be a volunteer even if you do not have a current blue card, however, final approval of your application will rely on your Blue Card being approved and a physical card received by Friday the 12th of November 2021.
