Red Cross youth and young adult classes empower the next generation to respond in the event of a natural disaster or emergency.
These programs align with the Red Cross mission to teach our community how to be better prepared. These programs are free to schools and other youth groups and can be taught stand-alone or in conjunction with each other.
