British Red Cross : Red100 - A national conference for young volunteers
Red100 is a national conference for young volunteers as part of the British Red Cross EYV2011 activities. Young people aged between 15 and 25 make up 18% of the volunteers that currently support the British Red Cross. Red100 was the first national conference for young volunteers; it aimed to celebrate their diversity, enthusiasm and talents, and encourage them to be involved in all aspects of the Red Cross.
Red100 brought together some of the most active Red Cross young volunteers to find out what opportunities are available to them in both the Movement and the British Red Cross.
Volunteers were given opportunities to feed back on genuine Red Cross issues and received training to equip them with leadership skills needed to influence decision making at all levels.
