Australian Red Cross is part of the world’s largest humanitarian organisation. Our aim is to improve the lives of the most vulnerable people in Australia and across our region.
The Save-A-Mate (SAM) program aims to reduce the harms caused by alcohol and other drug use within the community, especially amongst young people.
This includes encouraging people, particularly young people, to reduce the harm caused by their alcohol and other drug use at festivals and community events and to promote ‘safer partying’.
This is achieved through non-judgmental and impartial peer education, which is conducted primarily by SAM festival and event volunteers (SAM crew).
Requires the ability to travel to regional locations and work flexible hours to engage volunteers and attend festivals and events which may include evenings, weekends and public holidays.
This position requires a valid Australian drivers licence and current Working with Children Check.
Be part of one of the largest humanitarian organisations and know that the work that you do will help improve outcomes for vulnerable people.
