American Red Cross-Indiana Region

  • 2 people are interested

At the American Red Cross our mission is to "prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors." One of our 5 essential services is our International Services, supporting our local, national, and international communities through programs to bring awareness to international law, reuniting families who have been separated, and many other programs.

Through the International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Youth Action Campaign you can start the conversation in your community abut how International Humanitarian Law preserves humanity amidst inhumanity. Youth and young adults, ages 13-24, can receive an overview of IHL and build the skills necessary to manage an effective awareness campaign through this American Red Cross program. Participants will:

  • Plan and execute an IHL campaign in their community
  • Use social media and in-person tactics to spread their message
  • Develop leadership, communication, and project management skills
*May additionally be potentially nominated for the IHL Youth Action Campaign Summit in Washington, DC.
