AMERICAN NATIONAL RED CROSS

Want to make a difference in your community? Do you enjoy presenting, engaging and instructing children? If so, we need you to join our team! The American Red Cross is seeking volunteers to fill the role of Prepare with Pedro (for ages 4-7) and the Pillow Case Project (ages 8-11). The presenter will instruct and educate youth on how to prepare and stay safe during an emergency.

Volunteer Job Duties:

Save lives and prevent injury by providing leadership and/or support to Disaster Cycle Services (DCS) team members by supporting the Prepare with Pedro program. The 30-45-minute presentation provides emergency preparedness education to youth in grades K-2 (ages 4-7) in school classrooms and other settings by following Pedro the Penguin as he learns how to be prepared and take action during an emergency.

The Pillowcase Project is a national youth preparedness program offered by Red Cross regions across the country. The 40- or 60-minute presentation provides emergency preparedness education to youth in grades 3-5 (ages 8-11) in school classrooms and other settings. Numerous tools have been developed for this program including a standardized curriculum, workbook, quizzes and activities which have been carefully constructed with the help of curriculum and hazard experts. Many tools for presenters have been developed to foster consistency and fidelity to the program goals and objectives. The highly interactive presentation addresses home fire safety, a local natural hazard, psycho-social coping skills and household preparedness steps like making a plan and a kit.

Worker roles include either being a presenter, presentation assistant, administrative support, or presenter trainer!
