We believe youth have the potential to make a difference in huge ways. In our eyes, they are a vital resource bringing energy, innovation and inspiration to the American Red Cross and our goal is to provide them with meaningful opportunities for education, training and volunteer service so that they remain a part of the Red Cross family throughout their lives.

Youth Volunteer Opportunities:

Join or Start a Red Cross Club

Red Cross Clubs are officially recognized organizations on school campuses led by middle school, high school, and college students. Club members serve their community through service, education, and leadership as volunteers of the American Red Cross. Red Cross Clubs participate in activities that align with the Red Cross’s humanitarian mission by holding regular service projects and leadership training throughout the school year to benefit members and their community.

All Red Cross clubs work with the support and guidance of their local Chapter, and collaborate with other clubs to plan and execute service projects and fundraising events. Club service projects follow the Red Cross’s five lines of service.

Take action now and join a Red Cross Club, or take the challenge to start a club if your school doesn’t have one. For more information on how to start a Red Cross Club at your school, as well as ideas for service events for your club, contact our Volunteer Services team at
