Red Cross Sees Increase in Youth Volunteers During United We Serve Program
Date:9/9/2009

lunteers during United We Serve. The American Red Cross Bay Area in San Francisco trained 30 new volunteers, all supervisors and managers in their professions, to orient and train new volunteers at volunteer intake centers in the event of an emergency. For the first time ever, the Southern California Blood Region has more blood drive volunteers than available positions. At the Heartland Chapter in Omaha, a group of 12 new youth volunteers made 70 blood donor appointments during three hours of calling.

The percentage of prospective volunteers ages 16 to 18 contacting the Red Cross for service opportunities increased significantly during the initiative. In the spring, people ages 16-18 made up 9 percent of all prospective volunteers, but the percentage nearly doubled to 17 percent during the summer.

Interest in volunteering among young adults, ages 19 to 25, also rose after United We Serve was initiated. Prior to United We Serve, young adults represented 23 percent of people interested in volunteering with the Red Cross. With United We Serve activated, 28 percent of prospective Red Cross volunteers were young adults.

Youth data are based on a Red Cross Survey that compares volunteering at the Red Cross during three months before United We Serve was launched (March 22-June 22) to volunteering from the June 22 launch of United We Serve to August 3. Data concerning characteristics of prospective volunteers are based on an American Red Cross survey of people responding to online position postings from January 1 to August 28, 2009.
