Rosies has supported school leavers at Surfers Paradise since 1987, making us the longest serving community organisation at Schoolies Week.
Rosies collaborates with 19 other government and non-government agencies as part of the Gold Coast Schoolies Week Community Safety Response.
The Response aims to support young people to make responsible decisions while they celebrate. A safe space is cordoned off for young people to enjoy themselves without recourse to alcohol or drugs, and young people can access vital support services as required. Schoolies are encouraged to think about their behaviour and how their choices affect themselves, their friends, and the wider community.
As a support service, Rosies volunteers help young people to celebrate the end of their high school years safely and with dignity – we’re there when their parents can’t be.
