The American Red Cross has a vibrant Youth Club program so that young people can get involved in our humanitarian mission while they're still in school. Here in Northern Nevada, we are looking for a Youth Club Coordinator who has excellent leadership abilities, loves working with youth, and wants to make a difference in our community. The time commitment is roughly two hours per month, and during that time you'll get to do the following:
Meet with Red Cross Club officers and Club Advisor/Sponsor at beginning of school year.
Be available to attend Club meetings as necessary or requested by student leaders, or arrange for attendance by other chapter leadership.
Assist the Red Cross Club officers with Club registration/renewal process on Volunteer Connection, including ensuring the Club Constitution is approved and submitted.
Approve volunteer hours of Red Cross Club members in Volunteer Connection.
Provide Club with guidance and resources to be successful.
Integrate Club members into the activities of the local Red Cross unit.
Provide Club members with volunteer opportunities through multiple lines of service.
Create and maintain an environment where youth feel empowered to lead and mobilize peers in community service projects addressing local and global issues.
Provide recognition opportunities for youth and young adult volunteers throughout the year.
Provide Club access and/or assistance with placing an order to the national branded merchandise vendor for any promotional product needs (i.e. t-shirts, water bottles)
If that sounds interesting to you, and you have some extra time to spare, please reach out! We'd love to have you as part of the team!
