Youth Red Cross

Youth represent a substantial part of the membership of Red Cross for its humanitarian commitment. 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. This has been designed to involve young people as much as possible in the movement and its activities not only as workers and also as beneficiaries, but as partners in management. The programme focuses on the following areas:

Promote life and health through training and education on safety, primary health care and healthy living

Encourage community service through training and education

Disseminate the seven fundamental principles of Red Cross and Red Crescent movement through activities that encourage the Red Cross ideals

Promote international friendship with activities that cultivate a humanitarian spirit

Technical support in the development of youth programmes, fund-raising, identification of material and human resources



The youth unit aims to have young people recognized by Societies leadership as equal partners who address the needs of the most vulnerable.
