Skills You don’t need special skills to be a volunteer. We’ll train you. Many volunteers bring skills from work or personal experience, but others choose to work in completely unrelated fields. We have volunteer openings for people of all skills and abilities.
Opportunities Volunteer Management: Assist with volunteer recruitment, placement, record keeping and recognition.
Disaster Services: Provide food, shelter, comfort and home for families affected by major disasters such as fire, hurricanes and tornadoes.
Disaster Action Team: Volunteers need to respond to single-family fires with a disaster action team supervisor.
Disaster Preparedness Presenter: Educate individuals and groups on how to be prepared before a disaster occurs.
Public Affairs: During disasters, tell the Red Cross story to your community.
Other The Red Cross responds to approximately 70,000 disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires that affect a single family to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes that impact millions. In these events, the Red Cross provides shelter, food; health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet. Although the Red Cross is not a government agency, it is an essential part of the response when disaster strikes. We work in partnership with other agencies and organizations that provide services to disaster victims.
