With parent permission, youth may participate in many of the same volunteer opportunities as adult volunteers. Community Outreach for example, is a fun way to volunteer with a friend, a sibling, or even a parent, and make a difference in your community.
You can also train to be certified in First Aid, CPR, Babysitter preparedness and much more. You never know when you might need these skills, and if the situation arises - whether it's a friend choking at dinner, or a family member having a heart attack - this knowledge is more than just handy; your skills could save a life. Sign up to take a class here.
As a Youth Volunteer, you may want to join or start Red Cross Youth Club at your school. Red Cross Youth Clubs are high school or university student-run groups committed to promoting health and safety as well as providing aid to victims of disaster or accidental injuries. With the help and resources of their local American Red Cross Chapters, Red Cross Youth Clubs make a difference in their communities through fundraising, first aid and safety education and other community service projects, and have a fantastic time doing it!
