The American Red Cross National Young Professionals Council (NYPC) seeks to fill up to three open seats on the Council and is soliciting applications from young professional volunteers to serve a two-year term that will begin November 1, 2013. Young professional volunteers with field experience in a Club Red or other Red Cross young professionals group are highly encouraged to apply, as the NYPC aims to round out existing group expertise.  Young Professionals with experience across multiple organizations are encouraged to apply.

The NYPC builds the capacity of the American Red Cross by engaging and supporting volunteers and donors between the ages of 21 and 35. The group is led by young professional volunteers including national youth leadership alumni, local young professional Red Cross leaders and club members, as well as subject matter experts in various areas. The Council leverages the work experience and broad skill sets of young professionals in order to further the mission of the American Red Cross. Additionally, this group provides advice and input to the Vice President of Volunteer Management and other senior leaders.

Formed in 2008 by former National Youth Council members who wished to continue their service to the American Red Cross, the NYPC focuses on developing career paths for young adults in the Red Cross, ensuring they remain volunteers and donors in the future, as well as engaging young professionals new to the organization through groups like Club Red.

Please pass along this information to the active young professional volunteers in your chapter, station or region, and encourage them to apply. Applications are due Monday, September 16, 2013 at 5PM EDT.
