Red Frogs is a support program that exist to serve and safeguard young people. Red Frogs does this through programs that provide a positive peer presence in alcohol-fuelled environments where young people gather, educate young people on safe partying behaviours, and promote and provide alcohol-free and/or diversionary activities that engage young people in these environments. Red Frogs aim is to change Australian culture for good, and ACC NSW & ACT wants to empower your church to partner with Red Frogs to make a positive impact in your community.
All of these programs are available for your church to build positive connections in your community. Please contact us if you would like to know more or click the tabs below for more information.
Red Frog High School Education Programs educate, equip and empower students to confidently make positive life choices and be a voice of change within their culture. Red Frogs expertly developed education programs address a number of real-life issues students face in a non-judgemental and practical way, offering information, advice and leadership insights from our 20+ years of experience with young people.
Red Frogs recognises that the culture of young people is dominated by alcohol. In situations such as Schoolies/Leavers Week, excessive consumption of alcohol and other substances means that things can often get out of hand and potentially alter the direction of a young person’s future. Our volunteers act as the eyes and ears in accommodation venues and out on the streets, providing a positive peer presence to school leavers.
Red Frog crew support thousands of university students across Australia, year-round. Throughout the semester you will see us handing out water at parties, cooking pancakes, hosting cafe crawls and doing many other random acts of kindness to help support university students during their studies. Volunteering as a Frogger allows you to safeguard young people as they navigate the challenges of uni life. It also provides an awesome opportunity to connect with other like-minded people with a passion for the next generation.
Since 2006, Red Frogs have had a positive presence in the Australian music industry. Red Frogs love providing support to festival patrons and touring musicians at some of the country’s largest music festivals. Red Frogs crew work closely and transparently with the festival’s First Aid contractor in order to provide a holistic crowd care strategy, where the medical response becomes proactive instead of reactive.
If you love sport, people, or both – you will love frogging at sports events! The Frog crew provide direct relief and support to fans at prominent sports events by distributing red frog lollies, water, icy poles, sunscreen and high fives – keeping the crowds hydrated and happy on long game days.
