Red Frogs are in the business of changing culture. We have found that equipping and training RA's and Executives is key in helping manage risks often found in student residences. Our practical and empowering training program is broken into two 1-hour sessions and with various customisable modules available, including:
Student Leadership Training
Raising a generation of leaders.
Culture is always changed from the inside out.
This means the future of your residence is in the hands of your students. Helping them to recognise that they have the power to carry influence and have a positive impact on their peers is what we are passionate about. We love passing on the DNA of Red Frogs to students to help them make responsible decisions and build great futures! We have four training presentations and workshops to help accomplish this.
Red Frogs is in the business of changing culture and developing leaders.

Select 2 to 3 alcohol free events that haven’t been well attended and look at ways to value-add and make them the best events of the year
#Residential Assistant (RA) Mentor Program
We believe that often more is caught than taught. Red Frog Mentors provide mentoring, training and leadership support for Residential Assistants that are tasked with looking after fellow students on their floors or wings in colleges/residences. Red Frogs will deliver an effective mentoring service to assist Residential Assistants in developing harm prevention and community building strategies for their floors and practically model to them effective student engagement.
This program spans across a semester and includes:
- Dedicated Red Frog trainer and team
- 10 weeks engagement
- Student Leader training workshops x 2
- Practical mentoring sessions x 8
Through this program Red Frogs will:
Facilitate brainstorming sessions with RA's around challenges on college/res
Guide RA's in implementing early intervention and harm minimisation strategies around alcohol related activities
Guide RA's in implementing strategies to combat isolation and loneliness
Assist RA's in planning out calendar of events to target challenges and identify required resources
Assist RA's in running non-alcohol focused events to build community
Model effective student engagement to RA's during events
Starting out at University or TAFE can be a hard transition for students! In this introductory presentation we draw upon 20 years of experience working with youth in Australia to give them an educational ‘101’ to life after secondary school.
