International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Youth Education Raid Cross Facilitator - Gainesville Area
American Red Cross - North Florida Region
What is it?
Raid Cross is a role-playing simulation activity that helps students understand the basic rules of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) - and recognize that even war has limits. During the simulation, participants play the roles of civilians, soldiers, prisoners of war and humanitarian aid workers. By taking on different roles, participants see conflict situations through various key perspectives. Raid Cross can be conducted on school and college campuses and in community centers.
How does it help?
The Red Cross strives to raise awareness about IHL and the laws of conflict. By organizing Raid Cross, you will help the Red Cross fulfill its mission and at the same time, help others learn that war is much more complicated than what is seen on television, movies and video games.

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Every single day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies. Whether itﾒs one displaced family, thousands of disaster victims, or providing care and comfort to an ill or injured service member or veteran or support to a military family member, our vital work is made possible by people like you. It is through the time and care of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things.
Due to COVID-19, we at the American Red Cross are delivering our mission a bit differently these days. Nearly all of our work is being done virtually when possible. After you complete the volunteer application at RedCross.org/Volunteer, a regional representative will reach out to speak to you about specific opportunities in your area and how you can help.
