Thank you for your interest in becoming an American Red Cross Volunteer!
Volunteers are the power and the passion behind the American Red Cross. As a Red Cross volunteer you will make a difference every day. Whether you are comforting a victim of a house fire, providing disaster preparedness training, assisting in the office, or helping with blood drives or special events, you will be helping to change lives.
Get started now by joining our Red Cross volunteer team. Please fill out the information below to create your profile in Volunteer Connection. Once you submit your information, you will receive an automatic e-mail with a link to activate your account. This should happen within a few minutes. If you do not quickly receive an activation e-mail, check your spam folder.
Once you've received the activation e-mail and clicked on the link to activate your account, you will be asked to complete several additional steps to become a Red Cross volunteer. As a youth under the age of 18, you are required to have your parent or guardian sign two forms which you will download and then return to us once signed. You will be asked to create a username and password for this application. The username must be your complete primary email address. Remember the Password you create, as you will be asked to authenticate your Red Cross “Volunteer Connection” account. If you do not receive a follow up email or have questions about the process, please contact: Amy Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org, Regional Volunteer Director.
(Please note that this application is for volunteers ages between 13 and 17. If you are 18 or over please complete the General Adult Volunteer Application. Thank you!)
