The transition to uni can be one of the most exciting and challenging times in a young person's life. That's why you can find our crew supporting thousands of university students across New Zealand, year-round. Throughout the semester you will see us handing out water at parties, cooking pancakes, hosting cafe crawls and doing many other random acts of kindness to help support university students during their studies.
The Red Frog University Program also has an international presence, operating in Australia, London, South Africa and Canada.
You can find Red Frogs supporting thousands of university students in Student Residential Colleges across New Zealand.
#What we do
Not only do Red Frogs make Market Days fun and engaging, but we also keep an eye out for anyone who looks like they need some support.
Red Frogs want to share our message and help shape culture through equipping the leaders of tomorrow.
Our crew provide direct relief in the form of ‘hydration stations’, which allow us to create a controlled and safe space for people to rehydrate with water and icy-poles, chill out and chat with someone. Having a presence in these environments reduces the risk of harmful behaviours and potential incidents.
Our crew provide students with study and stress relief by visiting colleges/uni campuses throughout the semester (and especially in the lead up to exams) to hand out lollies, share snacks and play games with students. We find these visits create a friendly atmosphere, build community and provides pastoral care to those feeling overwhelmed, lonely or just needing someone to talk to.
Red Frogs can assist with or run an event for universities and residential colleges that is alcohol-free and inclusive of students who are under the age of 18. Red Frogs conduct cafe crawls, games nights, random acts of pancakes, BBQs - the list goes on! These dry events provide a great off-ramp for students who want a break from drinking activities and also fun alcohol-free alternatives for students whose choices are otherwise limited.
