Youth programs play a major role in preparing our young people for the future emphasizing education, leadership and volunteerism. That's why we're committed to doing whatever it takes to encourage you to make our community a better place. Whether you need hours for school or planning ahead for college, we have after-school and weekend projects that provide fun and valuable community-minded opportunities.
What is LDC? LDC is a four-day, three-night camp where a diverse group of high school-age youth (in grades 9-11 as of March 2020) will learn how to work as a team, to overcome challenges, discover their own values and skills, and make new friends! At LDC, 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 professional development skills training, physical challenges and a talent show
American Red Cross Mission and Lines of Service: disaster preparedness, hands-only CPR and youth volunteer opportunities.

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.
