Youth Volunteer Intern (Under 18 Years Old)
Summer Internship Program Mission
The Summer Internship Program is designed to be mutually beneficial for selected interns and for the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region. The program provides students the opportunity to gain leadership, communication, and practical skills in a professional setting and in their areas of interest, while serving their communities. The program gives Red Cross the ability to better fulfill its mission and services to the community by benefiting from the skills and dedication of a committed group of student interns.
The Summer Internship Program is an eight week program held between the months of June-August. Interns can work in any of the Los Angeles Region chapter offices including Antelope Valley, Arcadia, Claremont, Glendale-Crescenta Valley, Greater Los Angeles, San Gabriel Pomona Valley, and Santa Monica.
All internships through the program are unpaid; however, academic credit can be given if applicable to an intern’s situation. Students can also fulfill community service requirements through their participation in the program.
Summer interns must be students enrolled in high school, or college/ university.Selected interns should have a genuine interest in the American Red Cross and accept its Seven Fundamental Principals into their value systems. Ideally, interns will continue their involvement with the American Red Cross after completing their internship, although it is not a program requirement. Interns must be available to commit at least 15 hour per week for the duration of the internship.
