Are you 15-17 years old and looking to gain valuable work experience and give back to your community by helping save lives? Join the Summer Youth Corps program today and be on your way to having an epic summer!

As a member of our Summer Youth Corps, you will be a Red Cross Blood Drive Ambassador, staffing the registration desk and/or refreshment area at nearby blood drives. We require you to volunteer for 50 hours between June and August 2019, which is approximately 10 blood drives. In return, we will provide a letter of reference for your portfolio (great for college applications, future jobs, etc.) and documented community service hours. You will also build your customer service, communications & organizational skills, contribute to your community and have the opportunity to work directly with medical staff.

What else do you need to know?

Most blood drives take place during the day, Monday – Friday, and occasionally on weekends. Drives are held in Philadelphia and surrounding counties Bucks, Montgomery, Chester & Delaware.

You will provide your own transportation to the blood drives that you choose.

Sign up online and choose the locations and times that best fit your schedule.

Once your shift is accepted you are set! While there is flexibility in the drives you choose to attend, once you have signed up, you cannot cancel or reschedule your accepted shift.
