#Red Frog Roles

As Red Frogs, our role is to support a generation of school leavers during what can be an enjoyable, yet at times, physically and emotionally confronting week. Below are the ways Red Frogs assist during Schoolies week at Airlie Beach.

Hotel Chaplains

Hotel Chaplains are the core of our Schoolies response. As a chaplain you will be part of a team of 4 to 5 crew members responsible for a hotel 24/7. This is your opportunity to build friendships with the Schoolies by being available to them in their hotels, on the streets or in the Schoolies Hub.

Each team has a team leader as well as a strong network of pastoral carers and location leaders, ensuring you are valued and supported day and night. Being a Hotel Chaplain is a full time commitment for your selected date block.

RF Creative Crew

Whether you’re handy with a camera, have a director’s cap or just love telling a great story - we need you.

As RF Creative we get the privilege of capturing the incredible behind-the-scenes moments and stories as our crew safeguard a generation - if this is up your ally we would love for you to join us. For more info and to express your interest click below.

Entertainment Crew

DJ’s, dancers, & die-hard party goers apply here. Red Frogs entertainment stages are the most popular form of Schoolies entertainment.

If you’ve got energy, and the skills to match, then this is the role for you.
