International Services Courses, June 19-20

international volunteer

Classes run on Wednesday, June 19th and Thursday, June 20th.

Specific days and times for each class are listed below.

Humanitarian principles are at the core of the Red Cross mission, and continuing this work requires inspiring and engaging the next generation. Across the country, American Red Cross chapters help both adults and youth understand international humanitarian law and its relevance to our daily lives and issues we face as a country.

Even in war, there are limits. The Geneva Conventions protect civilians, prisoners of war and wounded soldiers. The American Red Cross helps people in the U.S. understand and respect these laws.

The Cincinnati Area Chapter offers several courses (free and accredited) on these topics. By relating humanitarian issues to current affairs, these efforts educate our citizens, soldiers, young people and leaders about the importance of humanitarian principles and preserving human dignity.

The Cincinnati Red Cross has the following International Courses coming up for the month of June. Register today!
