Youth Services is a multifaceted program created to help youth develop good character and the tools and opportunities to succeed. The program is designed to consistently promote community service and develop leadership skills.
The Greater Long Beach Chapter believes youth are a vital resource necessary for the future of the American Red Cross and to increase capacity for quality service delivery within the community.
There are many opportunities for today's youth in the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross gives youth the tools that will prepare them for the challenges of work life through volunteer experiences. The program promotes charitable giving and promotes a sense of community responsibility. By interacting with and assisting those in need, youth volunteers establish a sense of awareness and personal achievement. Volunteering in community service gives youth the opportunity to help and teach others, make new friends and learn more about themselves and their community.
