The American Red Cross will provide the premier environment for youth and young adults to learn, practice and exemplify humanitarian values.
American Red Cross Club Mission
Through hundreds of Red Cross clubs across the country, youth and young adult volunteers support the American Red Cross mission to prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. Red Cross clubs are an extension of the local Red Cross providing students opportunities for training, leadership development, and the ability to choose activities that address their community’s greatest needs. Red Cross Clubs empower students and faculty with Red Cross knowledge and life-saving skills to help prepare their schools and communities to respond to emergencies.
Each club is encouraged to perform at least three service projects during the year. During these projects, the youth will perform volunteer work on behalf of the American Red Cross. We highly encourage projects that are directly related to our many lines of service such as:
Disaster Readiness and Response
International Relief and Immunization
Clubs will be provided a menu of service opportunities and guidance from the Chapter.
Fundraising is also highly encouraged amongst the clubs to teach students about the importance of philanthropy. However, because the Red Cross Clubs are extensions of the American Red Cross, fundraising must be limited to supporting the American Red Cross and its mission.
