With thousands of school leavers set to descend on the Gold Coast for schoolies celebrations this November, the call has gone out to locals to volunteer their time to help make Schoolies 2019 as safe as possible.
The Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response team is on the hunt for dedicated and caring volunteers to fulfil a number of roles in Surfers Paradise from Saturday 16 November to Friday 22 November.
People who step forward will patrol in groups of four, help support and assist emergency service personnel, and be a friendly face Schoolies can trust with the right advice or support when needed.

The Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response is a coordinated program of support and safety services delivered by state and local government in conjunction with community groups to enhance safety during the Schoolies holiday season.
It includes the organisation of free nightly activities and entertainment in the Schoolies Hub and access to a range of free support services.
Volunteers must be over 18, be able to work in a team environment and hold a current Blue Card issued by Blue Card Services. Applicants who don’t have a Blue Card will be provided with all the information they need to apply for one.
