The Renewal of Youth Leadership Model provides a range of humanitarian actions that are aligned with the organisation's priority areas, creating more accountability for young people, strengthening approval processes for youth led activities, and providing more support for YAC Executive Officers.
The model supports the Youth Engagement Strategy allowing young people to be more actively involved in the humanitarian work of Red Cross.
Providing a range of humanitarian action opportunities for young people to participate in, the model not only aligns with organisational priorities but also allows the flexibility and freedom for young people to choose the nature of their engagement
This model strengthens the capacity of Red Cross to mobilise a large cohort of ready and willing young people at any time, providing the organisation with a national united perspective on issues affecting vulnerable communities and people.
