The International Humanitarian Law Youth Action Campaign informs youth and young adults (ages 13-24) about the Geneva Convention and rules of armed conflict and empowers them to educate their community about international humanitarian law through peer-to-peer campaigns. The American Red Cross of Massachusetts is looking for Program Coordinators to work with local High School students to help them meet their in-person and social media goals. Initial training is approximately 12 hours. You will need to commit to about 5 hours per week in August and September to get the program up and running, and again is May as the program year concludes. During the academic year, monthly meetings are the requirement.

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 its 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. We operate the largest food pantry in New England, we empower volunteers as leaders of the organization, we offer training and support. Whether it is standing with a family on the sidewalk at a house fire to offer comfort and care or it is contacting someone in the armed services who has a new baby, the Red Cross is a gentle presence of compassion and assistance.
