The American Red Cross is committed to training and empowering youth in our community. Over five days, high school and college students build confidence and cultivate core leadership skills such as teamwork, public speaking, and diversity/cultural understanding. These are skills that can later be applied on school campuses as young adults and throughout life. Throughout the week, American Red Cross youth volunteers and staff members create sessions and activities that reinforce delegates’ individual and team leadership skills. Over 100 youth come back from camp each year as stronger individuals. Delegates form friendships that last a lifetime. Moreover, they become leaders who make a difference in their schools and communities.
