Red Cross Classes: Take One. Teach One. Host One.

Some of the best ways to get involved with the American Red Cross are through our classes. More than 9 million people will learn lifesaving skills through the Red Cross this year. Regardless of age or occupation, our health and safety courses offer peace of mind to all who participate. No one expects to be faced with an emergency situation. The Red Cross can help you to be prepared with the right knowledge and skills to respond when the time comes.

The American Red Cross also educates the American public about the principles of international humanitarian law through courses at local chapters across the country. The Red Cross promotes the Exploring Humanitarian Law curriculum for high schools and universities. Its adaptable resources give teachers easy-to-use information to bring alive lessons about human life and dignity.
