What is GLOW Red? GLOW Red (GLOW - Growing Leaders of the World) is a four-day virtual leadership camp where a diverse group of high school-age youth will learn to work as a team, how to overcome challenges, discover their own values and skills, and make new friends. At GLOW Red, youth develop their leadership skills through:
Fundamental Leadership and Team Building: Individual and group activities in communication, problem-solving, decision-making, leadership styles, group dynamics, and trust-building.
Personal Development and Social Engagement: A variety of special events, including a talent show, educational learning labs, and entertainment.
American Red Cross Mission and Lines of Service: Disaster preparedness, Biomedical Services, and youth volunteer opportunities.
For more information and to apply for this camp, please reach out to one of the contacts named above.
High School Red Cross Clubs
High school Red Cross clubs encourage students to get involved with the Red Cross as volunteer members of their school’s student-led club. Each club works closely with the Red Cross to learn about and participate in training, service project opportunities, chapter-sponsored programs and national initiatives.
Youth requiring completion of community service hours for class, honor society, religious requirement or probation are requested to contact our office so we can determine the appropriate projects and supervised time available to satisfy the community service requirement. We will do our best to work with your schedule and requirements, but recognize at times we may not be the most appropriate match to serve your needs.
