Get Involved


One in 500 people in the world is a Red Cross volunteer. One out of every 25 people in the world will be helped by the Red Cross at some point in their life.

The American Red Cross is one of the world’s most renowned humanitarian organizations and volunteers are the very heart of our operation. Volunteers make a difference every day.

As the premier provider of relief services, Red Cross volunteers mobilize and respond when communities have the greatest need. We are a team of dedicated volunteers and staff whose mission is to provide relief to victims of disaster regardless of scope.

You can help comfort victims of a house fire or teach pet first aid or water safety. Whether you are interested in community services, international services, disaster services or teaching kids to swim with confidence – the Red Cross will guide you to your niche

By becoming a Red Cross volunteer, empower yourself, family and community to stand ready.
