ROLES:
FULL TIME CREW
The Full Time Red Frog Crew have a ‘go hard or go home’ attitude.  Red Frog Crew arepart of a team of 4 or 5 people who are assigned to look after Matrics during a 24 hour period, across 7 days. Matrics love and respect Red Frog volunteers. It’s incredible to walk down the street or into a hotel room and have a bunch of Matrics run up to you and just want to hang out. It’s what Red Frog volunteering is all about!

As a Full Time RF Crew you may be required day or night.  You won’t be able to volunteer all night and work a regular job during the day.  Think of it as an overseas mission trip.  Would you try and fly back to work during the day? Nope, didn’t think so!  Trust us, the experience of staying on the coast and committing your all to the Matrics really does make it worthwhile.

PART TIME CREW
The Red Frog walk home service is so popular that we have introduced a new crew specifically geared at walking Matrics home to their hotels. Matrics feel incredibly safe knowing that there is a group of volunteers walking with them – especially in the darker areas and far distances.

ThePart Time Crew will work on weekends, starting at 8pm each night and finish at approximately 2am.  So if you can only volunteer for a few nights during Matric Holiday, this is the crew for you to be part of.

As Part Time Crew, you will still need to pay a registration fee and attend training. Accommodation is not provided for the Walk Home Crew as there are no day time shifts.

SUPPORT CREW: Red Frog Hotline Volunteers
The Red Frog number receives a substantial amount of calls during Matric holiday celebrations and Red Frogs need dedicated, fun-loving and professional people to answer these calls.

Call Centre volunteers are rostered on day, night and late night shifts. As a Call Centre volunteer you are part of a team of people who help to direct the movements of the Red Frog Crew so they can make maximum impact in supporting young people on Matric Holiday  No matter what your age, you can volunteer in the Call Centre.

To man the Call Centre, you will need to be computer-literate, calm, and have the patience to deal with drunken teenagers on the phone. You will need to pay a registration fee and attend training. Call Centre Volunteers will be rostered based on availability.

SUPPORT CREW: Logistics
The Red Frog Crew needs support themselves! As the Red Frogs are out on the frontline with the Matrics they need a backstage crew. These are people to assist with pick-ups, deliveries, transportation of volunteers, distribution of meals and resources.
