The American Red Cross (ARC) is a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief, and disaster preparedness education in the United States. Red Cross volunteers and staff work to deliver vital services – from providing relief and support to those in crisis to helping them be prepared to respond in emergencies.
A Red Cross Club is an extension of a local Red Cross unit that empowers students to plan and implement Red Cross mission-related service projects. Red Cross clubs plan and coordinate a minimum of three service projects each year. These projects focus on preparedness, blood, and fundraising.
This is a great opportunity for you to hang out with your closest friends and helping your community at the same time. Also, aside from opportunities for training and leadership development, you will have the ability to choose mission-related activities that address your community’s needs while delivering the life-saving services of the Red Cross.
Students who want to join should find check if there is a Red Cross Club at their school or community. If there isn't, contact your local Red Cross Unit to find out how to start your own club.
