Get started by filling out an online application:

Attend a Red Cross Orientation

This required training highlights the history, values and fundamental principles of the Red Cross and reviews volunteer opportunities that are available. You can enroll in this course using the online profile that you’ll create during Step 1. While attending an orientation course in-person is preferred, online orientation is also available.


Get Volunteer Training

Depending on which volunteer path you choose, you may need to complete additional training, all of which is free. Volunteer Services will work with you to refer you to the activity and the location of your choice, and we’ll inform you of other courses that you’ll require to get started.
