We empower you to respond to the community's needs locally, nationally, and internationally through numerous leadership, education, and community service opportunities.
Red Cross Clubs
Red Cross Clubs are in many Northern California high schools and colleges. Members engage in activities such as disaster preparedness training, fund-raising drives, and volunteering at major events (such as Fleet Week). Clubs are run by and for the students with minimal adult involvement, encouraging your creativity to develop new ideas and programs while building leadership and community service skills.
The first step is to enroll as a volunteer. Start Here.
Then, we’ll contact you for the next steps.
Leadership Development Center (LDC)
LDC is a four-day overnight summer camp in a beautiful Bay Area location. Over 130 youth delegates gain hands-on experience and training in team-building, leadership roles, CPR and first aid, disaster and emergency preparedness, and other valuable life skills. The cost is very reasonable, and scholarships are available.
