Youth and Young Adult Programs
Red Cross Youth and Young Adults learn the spirit of volunteerism through exposure to the Mission and the Fundamental Principles of the American Red Cross. All across the United States, American Red Cross volunteers help save lives – providing assistance to disaster victims, facilitating emergency communications to military families, training communities in life-saving skills, and providing community disaster education.
By joining the American Red Cross, you become part of an international movement bringing these critical services to communities down the street, across the nation and around the world.
Volunteering is fun at all ages. Involvement as a Red Cross Youth can spark a lifelong commitment to serving our communities.
