Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response

Each year, hundreds of dedicated and caring volunteers give up their time to help make Schoolies as safe as possible. Safer Schoolies volunteers work closely with community organisations as well as local and state government agencies, to deliver vital safety and support services to school leavers celebrating on the Gold Coast.

Safer Schoolies volunteers patrol in groups and provide a first point of contact for schoolies and the local community in need. They fulfil a range of roles including supporting and assisting emergency service personnel and being a friendly face for school leavers.

Safer Schoolies volunteers support thousands of young people every year

About the 2022 Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response

About the Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response

Whilst Schoolies is often referred to as a festival or event, it is essentially a holiday period where Year 12 school leavers, who are predominantly under the age of 18, book end-of-school holidays in popular tourist destinations. The Gold Coast has been a chosen destination for many Queensland high school graduates since the 1970s.

The Queensland Government doesn't promote or encourage young people to book Schoolies holidays, rather it is committed to ensuring that the holiday period is as safe as possible for school leavers, local residents, businesses and the community.

This is achieved through the Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response which provides support to schoolies and local communities, and aims to balance the needs of both by encouraging young people to engage in safe and responsible behaviour.

In 2022, the Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response will be activated from Saturday 19 to Friday 25 November.
