The Singapore Red Cross Youth (RCY) is part of the largest humanitarian network in the world; i.e. the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. The RCY is a co-curricular activity (CCA) that integrates character-building, leadership, essential life saving skills and blood donation knowledge, local community service and overseas humanitarian projects in its curriculum, with the Red Cross ethos and service to humanity as its core focus.
Red Cross Youth integrates character-building, leadership, essential life saving skills and blood donation knowledge, local community service and overseas humanitarian projects in its curriculum, with the Red Cross ethos and service to humanity as a core focus.
It brings out the best of our Cadets (Secondary school units) and to prepare them for leadership in their families and communities. At the community level, Red Cross Youth Club provides a sustainable platform for our youth to continue volunteering to serve the vulnerable in their communities.
Red Cross Youth strives to instil the Red Cross Youth spirit and strengthen core values such as compassion, passion and professionalism in all members.
By participating in providing Singapore Red Cross humanitarian services, Red Cross Youths are groomed to become good citizens with strong senses of civic responsibility. They are trained to be adaptable, resilient and confident team players.
In Red Cross, I have learnt the importance of valuable skills in which I can provide people with immediate help in terms of first aid. During Sports day, I was able to give first aid to those who are injured before they get further medical help. Having Red Cross as a CCA is the best choice I have made. Red Cross has made an impact in my life and even after I leave Secondary School; I will continue to join Red Cross to serve the society.
