National Youth Involvement Month
Join the National Youth Council and the American Red Cross in celebrating National Youth Involvement Month (#NYIM)! During the month of November, NYIM is dedicated to highlighting youth involvement throughout the country. Red Cross youth make up about 20 percent of the entire Red Cross volunteer force; we want to feature your accomplishments and show everybody the impact you are making in your community! Learn more by watching this introductory video or by reading about the impacts of NYIM 2015, NYIM 2014, and NYIM 2013.
Do you need ideas for an activity your Red Cross Club can organize? Check out the activity guides found on RedCrossYouth.Org in order to find helpful resources and guidelines on how to host a creative Red Cross event.
Once your club completes the event, be sure to email your pictures to National Youth Council member Swati Guin at firstname.lastname@example.org or to post them in our Facebook group. Red Cross Clubs participating in NYIM will receive recognition by the National Youth Council on RedCrossYouth.Org, on our Facebook group, and on YouthWire, our monthly email newsletter.
Don’t forget to record all club activities via the Club Events Tab on your club’s GroupShare on Volunteer Connection! Learn how to record a new Red Cross Club event by reading these helpful tips or by watching these short videos.
