Who Are Red Crew?
Red Crew is a student support network that works closely with universities, student accommodation and Greek Life social organizations on campuses around the U.S. Made up of a bunch of amazing individuals with a heart for young people, we exist to see students have a safe and rewarding experience during their time at university.
Red Crew is in its infancy stages in the U.S. and we welcome enquiries on how our volunteers can help safeguard your students and setup support systems to make your university campus and Greek Life a safe and enjoyable experience.
Red Crew has been adopted from a support program originating from Australia called “Red Frogs”. In Australia it’s the largest student support network of its kind and has received numerous awards in both the academic and residential system.
What We Do
We understand that being away from home in new surroundings can be difficult for a young person. Many face developing new friendship groups while also dealing with financial, social and study pressures, all of which are often tough to navigate. That is why the Red Crew University program seeks to partner with you to meet your students in the midst of this fundamental time of life, and support them with a shoulder to lean on and a positive peer presence.
Red Crew want to share our message and help shape culture through equipping the leaders of tomorrow.
We train student leaders at strategic times such as before Orientation Week, working with them to put in harm minimisation strategies for their events and parties, as well as creating momentum with alcohol free alternatives, making them the most popular events in Orientation Week.
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.
We work with both university faculties, clubs and societies.
Our crew provide students with study and stress relief by visiting colleges/university campuses throughout the semester (and especially in the lead up to exams) to hand out candy, share snacks and play games with students. We find these visits create a friendly atmosphere, build community and provide pastoral care to those feeling overwhelmed, lonely or just needing someone to talk to.
Book Red Crew
Our crew can come to your event to support party goers. Almost too good to be true we’ll bring some sweets, hydration and whatever else we can get our hands on. This gives you extra support to help keep you patrons safe and we can also provide walk homes to make sure everyone gets home safe. If you have security we work in with them and any other support services at the event.
