School Clubs

American Red Cross youth clubs are school-based service groups that help the Red Cross fulfill its humanitarian mission; to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to disasters. Working closely with the local chapters of the American Red Cross in Florida's West Coast Region, club members participate in Red Cross service projects that impact their community and the world. They offer student members many new opportunities for self-development and the ability to choose activities that will address the community’s greatest needs.
