How to Volunteer

The American Red Cross relies on volunteers to help people prepare for emergencies, provide training in lifesaving skills, assist those affected by disaster and provide dynamic, interactive community education.

There are so many reasons to volunteer. Whether it's helping others recover from a family house fire, or teaching a babysitting course, anyone who joins the Red Cross family will find a place to belong.

When you become a Red Cross volunteer, you join a new family - a family with a shared mission of helping others.

We can help you find the volunteer position that fits your skills and interests. Find out how rewarding giving your time and efforts can be! Get started today!

We hope you will take the first step in becoming a volunteer with us by clicking on the link below. The application process will take you through several steps. You can return to the process if you have to stop before it is complete and you won’t lose your information.

If you have questions, please email Eileen Ryan.

Volunteers are invaluable to the daily operation of the American Red Cross Central and Southern Illinois Region, and are truly the heart and soul of the organization. Follow these steps and become a volunteer with the American Red Cross!
