You’ve got friends, school, work, family, and a bunch of other responsibilities. So why spend your valuable free time volunteering with the Red Cross?

When you’re a Red Cross volunteer you’re part of the world’s largest humanitarian organization. You can experience the personal and professional benefits of channeling your energy to help improve the lives of people in your community and around the world. We have multiple volunteer opportunities across the U.S. to engage a new generation of young humanitarians.
