A CALL has gone out for 100 local volunteers to help out at the Byron Schoolies HUB.

The HUB, located in the Main Beach park, will be open 24/7 from November 16 to December 3.

It is expected that about 10,000 Schoolies will be in Byron Bay.

Byron Schoolies HUB co-ordinator Nicqui Yazdi said the HUB would be open 24/7 for the entire duration, to provide tourist information, a rehydration station, general first aid and anything else that the young visitors might need.

"Main Beach and the park area is the place where the Schoolies like to gather the most in Byron, particularly at night," she said.

Once again this year, some of the HUB volunteers will be offered free certificate training in either Apply First Aid (formerly Senior First Aid) or Youth Mental Health First Aid.

In order to be eligible for the free training offer, volunteers must register before the end of October.

To register, go to the YAC, and fill in the registration forms, or contact Ms Yazdi on 0402 013 177 or byronschooliessafetyresponse @yahoo.com.au
