About Us

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 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 instill 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.

Key Activities

Red Cross Youth organises a variety of programmes and activities every year to nurture compassionate leaders for humanity. Youths develop unique abilities and qualities to inspire and influence positive change in others by their own actions.

First Aid Competition

The National First Aid Competition is an annual competition which seeks to raise awareness and importance of first aid in cadets.This platform allows cadets get to show off their first aid skills.
