New National Youth Council Member

The National Youth Council is incredibly excited to welcome Maria Muzaurieta to our team!

Maria is a senior at The Bolles School, in Jacksonville, Florida. With the influence of the local chapter, Maria began her Red Cross journey when she founded the first Red Cross Club at her high school, serving as President for the past three years. Named Bolles’ Best New Club of the Year, The Bolles Red Cross Club and its members set a precedent for community service for Florida high schools with fundraisers, such as candy gram deliveries, bake sales, and flower sales during holidays.


Maria’s favorite aspects of working with the Red Cross include volunteer outreach and fundraising.

Maria was named the Red Cross Northeast Florida Youth Volunteer of the Year in 2015. The same year, she was named to her school’s President’s List, which recognizes students that have made a significant contribution in the area of service beyond the level of performance expected of a Bolles student and whose community-mindedness, hard work, and spirit stand out.

Aside from the Red Cross, Maria tutors in foreign languages and hosts international students, volunteers for local hospitals, is a certified babysitter, a National Hispanic Scholar, and serves as captain of the Varsity Crew team at her school.

Maria looks forward to lifelong involvement with the Red Cross and plans to pursue a career in medicine, while continuing her studies in Chinese, French, and Spanish. Contact Maria at [email protected].
