There are a few NewHope Young Adults going to various Schoolies locations this year to help safeguard the recently graduated Year 12’s.
Red Frogs is an organisation that safeguards and supports young people to combat a culture in Australia that is largely dominated by alcohol and other substances, often leading to dangerous and life-altering behaviours for young people. The Red Frogs Team go to these various locations and provide practical needs for these schoolies. These tasks include, but are not limited to; walking schoolies home at the end of the night, cooking pancakes, visiting (or cleaning!) their room, providing them with alternative ways to have fun instead of drinking and offering emotional support through what can often be a challenging week.
The Red Frogs team are in need of pancake shakers. Pancake Cook Ups is how Red Frogs are able to go, spend time and connect on a deeper level with the schoolies. So next time you are at the shops getting your groceries, why not pick up a few pancake shakers and drop them off at our Pancake Shaker Drive (located next to NewHope reception) before Thursday 25th November.
Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
