Leadership Adventures provide instruction in five areas of leadership including team building, assertiveness, facilitation skills, motivation and time management. Leadership Adventures will be offered conveniently through a series of day-long seminars to be held on Saturdays at area retreat centers. “Young adults are the future of our organization, their community, and their country,” said Carolyn Thompson, Red Cross Youth Services Specialist. “It’s important that we empower them with the skills and tools they’ll need to excel.”

Leadership Adventures participants will gain professional skills they can practice while organizing service-learning projects in the community. Contact us for more information on this exciting new program for 2004!

International Programs like our Refugee Youth Project in Baltimore tutor locally resettled youth. Our statewide initiatives encourage schools and community groups to collect school supplies and fundraise for measles vaccines to help needy countries. Check back soon for more information on this year’s School Chest Initiative, or contact us to join the mailing list.

Community Outreach educates youth about fire safety, nonviolence and HIV/AIDS awareness through performances by our Red Cross Players group, and our disaster education volunteers help local schools prepare for emergencies. In Speak Out!, students receive training from PR professionals on how to speak to groups, write press releases, and present Red Cross materials including disaster education. Youth can also be Fred Cross, our friendly mascot, and march with Red Cross volunteers and staff in local parades. To get involved, please contact us.

Student volunteers, in a partnership with Baltimore Resettlement Center and International Rescue Committee, establish relationships with refugees for cultural exchange, English conversation, sports activities, and field trips.
