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