Join the CrewByron Bay

Byron Bay has fast become a trendy location for schoolies to gather during end of year celebrations.

Byron Bay attracts a mixture of young people from Queensland, NSW and Victoria, therefore the Red Frog crew in Byron Bay also need volunteers from those locations to assist in safeguarding the young people from those regions.

Byron Bay Red Frogs provides 24 hours support to schoolies in hotels and accommodation houses as well as assisting with a 24 hour chill out zone, diversionary activities, walk homes, pancake cook-ups and transport.

See below for details on volunteer requirements, dates, costs and roles.

Frogging at Byron Bay Schoolies is an awesome opportunity for you to not only get connected with others who have a like-minded passion for the next generation, but to safeguard young people in their time of need.

#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 Byron Bay.

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 house, building or 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.

Support Crew

Enabling Red Frogs to operate over the duration of Schoolies requires a huge amount of resources constantly being set up, relocated and managed.

If you’re a ‘behind-the-scenes’ kind of person, have an available van or ute, like lifting and helping with set-up, or even doing VIP shuttle runs - then this is role for you.
