Schoolies Volunteers Thanked

Dec 03 2018, 4:30pm AEDT

This year, Drug ARM celebrated nearly twenty years of Schoolies based volunteering.

Once again, a team of Drug ARM volunteers travelled to the Gold Coast to meet and support young people celebrating in Surfers Paradise in the week following the end of their school career.

Our teams spent seven nights on the front line, handing out cups of water and providing a safe zone for young people to recharge. 

We were blessed to receive a visit from the Minister for Child Safety, Youth and Women Hon Di Farmer MP who presented certificates to some of our long serving volunteers including Colleen (pictured).

Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers. People interested in volunteering at Schoolies 2019 can contact Drug ARM on 07 3620 8800 or email
