Welcome to the North Florida Region of the American Red Cross, encompassing five Red Cross Chapters from the west end of Florida's Panhandle and Gulf Coast, east to the Atlantic Ocean.  This is the entry point for prospective Service to the Armed Forces volunteers.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a registered volunteer with the Red Cross.  By completing this application you will be one step closer to joining one of the most respected humanitarian service organizations in the world!

This page is for all adult volunteers (age 18 or older) who are interested in Red Cross programs serving our Armed Forces (SAF).  A background check is required for all our adult volunteers and is provided at no cost to you. [NOTE: We are currently experiencing significant delays in getting Department of Defense background clearances completed due to temporary suspension of this program by the military because of budget issues. Please contact your local Red Cross for more information!] Once you have completed your application, please create your Volunteer Connection account.  Volunteer Connection is Red Cross's new online volunteer management system and your portal to a variety of outstanding volunteer opportunities.

Again, thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.  It will be the greatest job you never get paid for.
