Leadership Opportunities within the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross is an organization that offers wonderful opportunities for all
volunteers to get involved in serving the 5 lines of service, including:

1. Service to the Armed Forces
2. Health and Safety
3. Disaster
4. Biomedical
5. International


The American Red Cross also offers an abundance of opportunities for youth to grow and
develop as leaders during their volunteer journey. Leadership positions are available at the
school, chapter and national level:








1. School Leadership

If you are part of a Red Cross Club at school, apply to become part of your school leadership!
Opportunities include positions from President, Vice-President, all the way to Marketing
Liaison, Secretary, and more.

2. Chapter Leadership

Many chapters offer a Youth Executive Board or “E-board”, where a team of youth in the
Chapter help to create and implement youth events and fundraisers across the chapter.

3. National Leadership
If you are looking to go above and beyond, and help to lead American Red Cross youth on a
national scale, look into applying to the National Youth Council. The application cycle is open every spring, and a term is a two year time commitment. The NYC also have a new Field Ambassador program, which you can learn more about here!
