Field Ambassadors

The American Red Cross Field Ambassador Program

What is the Field Ambassador program?

The Field Ambassador program is a program during the school year for outstanding high school Red Cross volunteers who want to take their Red Cross volunteerism to the next level.

With only 1 Field Ambassador per region, these volunteers serve as liaisons between their local region and the National Youth Council, promoting monthly national initiatives and working closely with local chapters and clubs to develop youth programs.

The Field Ambassadors work as a cohort to plan social media campaigns, spread information about opportunities for Red Cross youth and report to their National Youth Council member liaison with regional updates regarding youth volunteers.


Here’s what a few former Field Ambassadors have said about their experience with the program:

“It’s given me a lot of fun experiences, especially talking to other students and adults invested in the Red Cross. Before becoming a Field Ambassador, I had little contact with my chapter but now I have a more in-depth relationship. It feels good to know that I’ve left a mark on my chapter.” — Sujai Jaipalli

“It’s going well and I’m definitely more active than I was before. My past two years with the Red Cross have been isolated to just my club, but now I have a broader perspective and would like to continue through college. The program is quite advantageous.” — Megan Zachariah

“The program is really great. I get to see Red Cross come together in a national level and bigger perspective. Before that, my involvement was just local. Now I’m reaching out to not just my chapter, but all 10 chapters. I’ve been helping out with resources and connecting presidents.” — Amisha Chowdhury
