Join or Start a Red Cross Club
A Red Cross Club is a group that provides youth and young adults with opportunities for training, leadership development, and the ability to choose Red Cross mission-related activities that address your community’s greatest needs. Red Cross Clubs empower youth and young adults with knowledge and life-saving skills to help prepare their school and community to respond to emergencies.

Red Cross Clubs

Volunteers in high school aged 13-17 are encouraged to become part of our Red Cross Club Youth Program which offers meaningful opportunities to learn and to serve their communities in the New Jersey Region. Volunteers in college are also invited to participate in a Red Cross Club.

Red Cross Clubs build character and provide tools and experience for leadership, strong communication skills, and community service. Red Cross youth volunteers develop these skills and establish a sense of awareness by interacting with those in need. They offer the avenue to put your talent, skills and passion to work for a greater purpose and connect you with the largest humanitarian movement in the world.

Being part of a Red Cross Club, you will get the opportunity to work closely with the local Red Cross office, being engaged in projects that address some of our country’s and world’s greatest needs. You will create, plan and participate in service projects that can help your school, your community and even make an impact around the globe.

Red Cross Clubs can also offer you many opportunities for self-development, and empower you to build critical leadership skills. Lastly, they can be a fun, energetic experience that enables you to expand your social network and often build life-long friendships as you connect with other young volunteers who have the same passion for helping others as you do!

You can join a Red Cross Club by completing the volunteer application.

If your school does not have a Red Cross Club and you are interested in starting one, or have other questions about Red Cross Clubs or Councils, please contact Karen Winlund, Youth Specialist, at karen.winlund@redcross.org or 908-273-2076.
