Roles

Torquay has been inhabited by Red Frogs for the past 10 years. Since then it has become a location that is popular with volunteers who are keen to spend their week interacting with schoolies in a fun environment. Torquay is unique, as it is a large geographical area with Schoolies living in Caravan Parks, Backpackers and private accommodation houses throughout the area. It is encompassed with a vast expanse of beautiful beaches.

If you are looking for a more laid back atmosphere, are team oriented, have a desire to build long-term friendships and willing to serve in all areas of the program then Torquay is the place for you.

In Torquay, we assist with Schoolies in a number of areas. We have street teams around the main hub of activity. Visitation teams cover the whole location, dropping into Schoolies accommodation, cooking pancakes and hanging out. The admin team work tirelessly in our HQ, coordinating teams and working directly with the Red Frogs Hotline.

Hotel Chaplains

Hotel Chaplains are the core of our Schoolies response. As a chaplain you will be part of a team of 4 to 5 crew members responsible for a house, building or hotel 24/7. This is your opportunity to build friendships with the Schoolies by being available to them in their hotels, on the streets or in the Schoolies Hub. Each team has a team leader as well as a strong network of pastoral carers and location leaders, ensuring you are valued and supported day and night. Being a Hotel Chaplain is a full time commitment.

Red Frog Hotline Volunteers

The Red Frog Call Centre is the hub of the Red Frog movements around Australia, receiving a record numbers of calls for anything from random acts of pancakes to more serious issues requiring immediate response.  Call Centre volunteers are rostered on day, night and late night shifts. As a legend of the phone you are part of a team of people who will direct the movements of the hotel chaplains, allowing them to make maximum impact in supporting Schoolies.
