The first step to becoming a Red Cross Disaster Response volunteer is to apply using our volunteer management system, Volunteer Connection.
To begin, create a profile. It takes less than five minutes. Submit your volunteer application through the system and request a background check. Upon receipt of your background check and application, you will be contacted by a volunteer coordinator to discuss the next steps.
Time commitments vary according to the area in which you choose to volunteer. Coordinators will discuss specifics with you after you complete the application process in Volunteer Connection, our volunteer management system.
