Youth Diversity Pledge

The National Youth Council created this helpful guide to facilitating a session with Red Cross youth and young adult volunteers to discuss the Red Cross Diversity Pledge and to sign a pledge document. Watch the introduction to the pledge and check out our blog article about former Council members and their experience with the Youth Diversity Pledge!

This pledge was created to empower youth and young adults to be advocates and leaders for the American Red Cross through education surrounding diversity and inclusion issues faced by the organization. As volunteers, we can best serve our diverse communities by celebrating our differences and learning about what makes each of us unique. By being constantly and consistently mindful of the people around us, we can create a positive volunteer environment for both the people we volunteer alongside and the communities we serve.


The Youth Diversity Pledge Facilitation Guide includes an agenda, and script plus a follow along video that facilitators can use throughout the session.


Session Time: 45-60 minutes
