The Augusta Red Cross recognizes youth involvement as an invaluable resource for meeting the ongoing mission of the American Red Cross. The Augusta Red Cross Youth Board was established in 1975 to provide service to the Augusta community and to provide valuable leadership training to our young leaders of the future.
The Youth Board is a 150 member multi-cultural group of student leaders representing 21 area schools. Youth Board members recognize the importance of helping others and they work hard throughout the year, initiating service projects and recruiting other youth to serve the community. They contributed over 3,400 hours of volunteer service to the Augusta community during the last year.
