What is National Youth Involvement Month?
National Youth Involvement Month is one of the Red Cross-National Youth Council’s most exciting and encompassing annual initiatives aiming to celebrate the accomplishments of Red Cross youth and young adult volunteers across the nation. Taking place in November, NYIM has a different theme each year: this year’s theme is Inspiration through Service.
National Youth Involvement Month is a time to celebrate the great work our youth and young adult volunteers do to support the Red Cross. The goal this November is for you to explore the Red Cross’ Mission through activities related to the various lines of service.
Throughout the month of November, we will be spotlighting outstanding Red Cross Clubs and Individual Volunteers on our social media platforms via Facebook and Instagram. To be featured in a spotlight, please look carefully at the details below.
