Become a Volunteer
If you’re passionate about helping people and looking for a volunteer career with a visionary humanitarian organization, you can make a difference with the American Red Cross.
Red Cross values provide the foundation for the high standards to which we hold ourselves in our daily interactions with those inside and outside the organization. Red Cross volunteers are ordinary individuals who are empowered to do extraordinary things.
