Red Frogs Australia work with over 1500 Red Frog volunteers to provide direct relief, safety and support to young people during Schoolies/Leavers Week across 16 locations. Volunteers act as the eyes and ears in accommodation venues and out on the streets, providing a positive peer presence to school leavers.
Red Frogs assist school leavers in many different ways, offering pancake cook-ups, room visits and games, room cleans, emotional support, walks homes and red frogs.
