The program is looking for teens to learn leadership skills while giving back to their community

The American Red Cross Youth Crew Program at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is getting ready to take flight once again, and it’s looking for a few good teenagers who are interested in not just working for one of the largest humanitarian organizations in the world, but also looking to help support their  community, military members and their families.

Organizers are holding an information session on Tuesday, Feb. 2, from 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. at the Youth and Child Development Complex, 156 Spinning Road, on the Base.

The Youth Crew Program is open to all teens, ages 14-18, with connections to WPAFB.

Youth volunteers serve in the Wright-Patterson Medical Center, support military families, work with children of deployed service members, teach community preparedness and support international initiatives.

In doing so, the members develop leadership skills that can be carried with them throughout their life, while also building a sense of community by serving those in need and letting them know they aren’t forgotten.
