Youth and Junior Red Cross

A substantial portion of the membership of Indian Red Cross Society is made up of young people. Young volunteers can make a significant contribution to meeting the needs of the most vulnerable people within their local communities through Red Cross youth programme.

When can we start? At the beginning of the school /college term is a good time to start programmes, but you can contact your local branch at any time for more information.

Ask your counsellor/program officer (teachers/lecturers) and contact District Red Branch /State Red Cross Branch if you do not have a Red Cross wing in your school/colleges.
