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.

All training will be provided to volunteers, and can be done remotely. No previous disaster preparedness experience is needed. There are options for in-person or virtual volunteer presenters, although In-Person presenters are in higher demand (must have COVID-19 vaccination).
