Young Professionals

Young professionals have no shortage of talent and energy to give to the Red Cross. We can provide relief to victims of disasters, organize fundraisers, mentor high school and college volunteers, teach lifesaving training courses and serve on boards of directors. And in exchange, the Red Cross offers us valuable networking and skill-building professional development opportunities, opening doors to new people and leadership positions.

The application period for the 2016 National Young Professionals Council is now open.  Application forms are available on The Exchange, or you can send an email to NYPC Chair Cristen Hodgers at to request the form.  Applications are due on May 1, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST.

Qualified candidates will be selected for a phone interview, and new council members will be informed of their appointment by June 30, 2016.  You must be a registered and active Red Cross volunteer or staff member for a minimum of 1 year to be considered. 


Connect with us on Facebook.  We look forward to hearing from you!
