Who Are the Red Frog Volunteers?
Volunteers are the heroes of Red Frogs Australia and it takes more than 1,500 people nationally to provide programs each year. They devote their time to others and unite together to provide solutions, support and safety for this generation of young people.

- Understand that at any time Red Frogs Australia can terminate their engagement as a volunteer and if termination of a volunteer agreement occurs will be required to hand back their Red Frogs volunteer shirt and I.D tag.
- Acknowledge that Red Frogs has a chaplaincy component to the program and therefore volunteers must understand and accept their role as a chaplain during the program. Whereby a volunteer applicant cannot provide sufficient proof that they would be able to uphold this part of the program their application may not be approved.
