Many volunteers have found the American Red Cross is just the right setting for them to use their talents and show compassion to people who so desperately need it. The Red Cross depends on volunteers, who constitute 97 percent of our total work force, to carry our humanitarian work.
The American Red Cross works within local communities, providing relief to people who have suffered a disaster. We also help people prevent, prepare for and respond to a variety of emergencies. With your help, the promise of neighbor helping neighbor in times of trouble becomes a reality and our communities become safer place to live.
By volunteering with the American Red Cross, you will join a worldwide movement dedicated to providing relief to victims of disaster. Whether you are in a career transition, a student looking for experience, work full-time, are retired or have a few extra hours, you can make a difference and save lives.
Whether you want to volunteer for an hour each month or a few hours each week the Red Cross needs your help!
Looking to volunteer on a regular basis? A variety of opportunities are available for you to join us daily, weekly or monthly.
Volunteers aged 15 - 17 are encouraged to become part of our Youth Program, which offers meaningful opportunities for education, training and community service.
