Volunteer Application

Adult over 18


Dear Prospective Red Cross Volunteer,


Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with the Northeast Pennsylvania American Red Cross!  Volunteers are an integral part of our organization -- in fact, volunteers constitute over 95 percent of the American Red Cross workforce.


You might be asking yourself what it means to be a Red Cross volunteer?  A Red Cross volunteer may help with a single event or assist in the office every week.  Some of our volunteers have been involved in their communities for 20 or 30 years providing lifesaving services, leadership and emergency assistance.  They represent their communities and come from many different backgrounds, ages and ethnicities. Volunteers serve at all levels of the Red Cross – in governance, management, direct service, support services, as well as in advisory capacities.


Once you enter your information below, you will be guided through the application process, including background check and online orientation. This application is for individuals 18 and over. If you are younger than 18 years old, please go back and select the youth application.


I look forward to working together on future endeavors and to seeing the community enhanced by the talents of concerned individuals like you.
