Our Mission

The American Red Cross Young Professionals Auxiliary (YPA) is a group of socially engaged individuals between the ages of 20 and 40, who share a dedication to the mission of the American Red Cross (ARC). We serve to support the ARC’s vision of preventing and alleviating human suffering through fundraising events, volunteerism and social advocacy in the community. Additionally, this opportunity allows for networking, personal growth and the development of future community leaders in the philanthropic world. Join us in our efforts to provide compassionate care to our neighbors down the street, across the nation and around the globe.

Major influencers and mentors to the Young Professionals Auxiliary include both the American Red Cross North Texas Region’s Board of Directors, and Tiffany Circle members.
