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 many ways Red Frogs assist during Schoolies week on the Gold Coast.
Join the CrewGold Coast
Week 1 and Week 2 are now closed - but you can express your interest for 2021 below!
Red Frogs will still be present at Gold Coast Schoolies 2020.
You may have heard the announcement made by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk in regards to Gold Coast Schoolies Week events being canceled.
Don't panic! What this really means is that due to COVID-19 health risks there are to be no organised mass gatherings (such as the beach party). It's our belief that the graduating cohort will still be celebrating their end of schooling as the Premier also confirmed school-leavers can still celebrate their achievements and take advantage of being able to travel throughout the state.
The Red Frogs mission remains unchanged, and we need your help to safeguard a generation on the Gold Coast.
Red Frog Hotline Crew
The Red Frog call centre is the hub of the Red Frog movements around Australia, receiving calls for anything from random acts of pancakes to more serious issues requiring immediate response.
Call centre volunteers are rostered on day, night and late night shifts. As call centre crew you are part of a team of people who will provide directives to the hotel chaplains, allowing them to make maximum impact in supporting Schoolies and get to incidents in time, instead of after time.
Walk Home Crew
Walk home crews are our fittest Froggers, getting the Schoolies back home safe and sound. Walk homes (particularly in the darker areas of Surfers Paradise) make the Schoolies feel safe, protected and loved throughout the week.
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.
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.
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.
NEW ROLE: DAY ZONE CREW!
Want to serve with Red Frogs in Hotel Chaplaincy, though can't do nights?
Well now you can apply to be a part of the Day Zone Crew!
Hotel Chaplains on day shift will be smashing out stacks of pancake requests, and get the opportunity to hang out with Schoolies as they wake from their slumber. There is so much need on the service during the days now, that we need day time chaplains just like you!
