It starts with YOUth

Australian Red Cross is proud to have young people taking action on humanitarian issues and creating change for the future.

These young people come from all around Australia and are leading the charge on real world problems in diverse and exciting ways.

From representing on the board of Australian Red Cross, to working in our programs and volunteering in our shops, we wouldn’t be who we are without them.

You too can get involved, share your voice, and contribute to the movement.
