High School Red Cross Clubs

High school Red Cross clubs encourage students to get involved with the Red Cross as volunteer members of their school’s student-led club. Each club works closely with the Red Cross to learn about and participate in training, service project opportunities, chapter-sponsored programs and national initiatives.

If you are interested in starting a Red Cross club at your high school, please contact Joseph Lenihan at joseph.lenihan@redcross.org or (714) 481-5397.

College Fieldwork Study (Internship)

The American Red Cross internship program is a mutually beneficial partnership with individuals who are affiliated with an accredited institution. The program provides students with meaningful opportunities to help their community through involvement with the Red Cross while gaining real-world experience and guidance from experts in their field of study. Stimulating and challenging professional projects, assignments and activities enhance the student's educational experience and skills.

For more information on the internship program, please contact Joseph Lenihan at joseph.lenihan@redcross.org or (714) 481-5397. Please include your resume.

Community Service

Youth requiring completion of community service hours for class, honor society, religious requirement or probation are requested to contact our office so we can determine the appropriate projects and supervised time available to satisfy the community service requirement. We will do our best to work with your schedule and requirements, but recognize at times we may not be the most appropriate match to serve your needs.
