    If you want to volunteer, make a change, or impact the lives of the needy, you’re at the right place! RI Red Cross Youth Chapter seeks to serve the community, whilst developing our members to become better leaders and citizens. As RCYC members, all of us become part of a legion of over 9,000 volunteers under the Singapore Red Cross’ nationwide humanitarian effort. In RCYC, you will be exposed to a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, after being trained in Standard First Aid.

    Besides volunteer opportunities, you can also expect to be given the opportunity to actively sign up for leadership and community courses such as the Youth Leadership Programme, Youth Agents of Behavioural Change Programme, Mentoring secondary school kids in an OBS-like Red Cross Youth Challenge Camp, etc.
