Opportunities for young people to develop their leadership skills can sometimes be hard to find. But Red Cross Clubs are a perfect example of youth taking action in their community, learning valuable leadership skills that will propel them into their future careers and work. In Southern Nevada, a growing number of students are starting Red Cross Clubs as a way to work together to make a difference in their community.
The Red Cross Clubs are recognized, student led school clubs for students ranging in age from middle school to college. Red Cross Clubs participate in Chapter sponsored projects and events ranging from Red Cross Blood Drives to Community Disaster Education. Clubs help with fundraising and spreading awareness of the American Red Cross mission of alleviating suffering.
