We look for highly energized and passionate individuals who are prepared to work full-time to serve the mission of the American Red Cross. The day-to-day work duties would depend on the role and which Red Cross Region you work within. Across all regions however AmeriCorps members focus on engaging communities through preparedness presentations, responding to local and national emergencies, training and engaging volunteers, and supporting clients in disaster recovery.
This is a very rewarding program but also very tough, work includes attending meetings at night, events on weekends and you can be called out on a disaster at any given moment.
