If you’re 18 or older and want to join the Red Cross, we have a variety of opportunities to suit your needs on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
Youth and Young Adult Volunteers
Students are encouraged to become a part of the American Red Cross youth program, which offers meaningful opportunities for education, training and community service.
Military Base Volunteers
Are you 18 or older? Do you have access to a military base? The American Red Cross could use you in our Service to the Armed Forces program, in which we offer communications and humanitarian aid to assist U.S. military members and their families.
What is the time commitment required to volunteer?
Time commitments vary according to the area in which you choose to volunteer. The specifics will be discussed with you by a recruiter once your application and background check are received in Volunteer Connection, our volunteer management system.
Can I volunteer for disaster relief operations nationally?
Yes, although you must have experience with disaster response as a local Red Cross volunteer. To acquire that experience, you must register, train and serve with your local chapter. There is no better time than now to start, so complete an application today!
How do I start the process of becoming a volunteer
The first step to becoming a Red Cross volunteer is to apply using our volunteer management system Volunteer Connection. You will be required to create a profile and complete the intake steps. Link to application above.
Can I volunteer for disaster relief operations outside of the United States?
Typically, there are very few volunteers deployed internationally and they are specially trained to manage international emergency operations. Please consider supporting our community’s local needs by volunteering with the Kentuckiana Region of the American Red Cross.
How do I choose which volunteer opportunity is right for me?
Consider your schedule, how much time you are interested in dedicating your skills and talents, and where you are willing to volunteer. Once you have completed the application process and background check, a volunteer recruiter will contact you to discuss volunteer opportunities and together you will determine a match.
