RED FROGS

At Leavers Week, Red Frogs volunteers are present wherever leavers congregate as a recognised and trusted source of support for when things go wrong.

Red Frogs Australia is a volunteer based organisation who’ve made it their mission to provide a positive peer presence in alcohol-fuelled environments where young people gather; educate young people on safe partying behaviours; and promote alcohol-free and/or diversionary activities that engage young people in these environments. 

You’ll find their friendly faces and giant bags of Allens’ Red Frogs Alive: visiting larger accommodation venues (resorts, caravan parks etc); on the beaches; answering calls on the Red Frog Hotline – 1300 557 123; and staffing The Zone.
