Blood Donor Ambassador Help create a positive donation experience at Red Cross blood drives.

Safety First!

Help the Red Cross save lives by using your customer service skills.
If you have a little free time and are a true "people person," the Red Cross has a great volunteer position.

Our need for volunteers is constant and continues to evolve as we navigate this Coronavirus health crisis. If you are interested in serving to meet essential service needs in the public, review the CDC guidance for people who are at higher risk for severe illness, consult your healthcare provider, and follow local guidance. The number one priority of the American Red Cross is the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, blood donors and recipients, and clients.

About This Position

Are you a friendly, well-organized and enthusiastic person who can represent the Red Cross to our blood donors?

Volunteer blood donor ambassadors ensure that blood donors have a pleasant and fulfilling experience, from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave. During a blood drive, whether you’re greeting donors, answering questions or thanking them for their donation, your courtesy and professionalism will create a favorable impression that encourages ongoing donor support.

You’ll need to meet these important qualifications:

  • Communicate in a professional manner with diverse populations
  • Read, write, hear and speak English in a legible and understandable manner
  • Demonstrate excellent customer service and comfort working with people
  • Follow COVID-19 protocols and mitigation measures
  • Manage the reception process by ensuring each donor is warmly greeted and assisted with initial intake according to the appointment priority system
  • Manage the hospitality experience by offering refreshments to donors, thanking them for their contribution, and alerting staff immediately if a donor shows signs of feeling unwell
  • Exhibit five key courtesies: respect, compassion, communication, collaboration, competence
