The Associate Board

  • A group of young adults at a Club Red meeting wearing their Red Cross pins

Our mission is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. The Associate Board assists the American Red Cross of Central Ohio in fulfilling that mission!

This exciting program provides an opportunity for young professionals interested in learning more about Red Cross programs and services to develop future leadership skills and experience. This is achieved from the ground-up in designing and completing one major fundraising event annually and promoting the Red Cross mission among other young professionals.

Through their commitment to volunteerism, members will create personal relationships with other Columbus YP’s. The Associate Board members make a three-year commitment to volunteer their time and talent to increase awareness, enlist volunteers, and raise funds in support of the Red Cross. The Associate Board allows Young Professionals to build rewarding relationships, develop leadership skills, and network with local businesses and organizations.

Participation of our YP’s in the work of our Red Cross is vital to our success. The President of The Associate Board will also have membership on the Regional Board of Directors.
