The Bahamas Red Cross YouthBuilding Community and Self Respect
“Creating Humanitarians, Present and Future”
The Bahamas Red Cross Youth is committed to preparing the youth of our nation to understand the importance of self-respect and service to others. Our mandate to the Bahamian society is to make everyone aware of our nationwide Humanitarian needs and endorse efforts of making The Bahamas a place where people learn how to serve one another. With these teachings in practice, we hope that they implement the principles learnt throughout their life. We also want to build good character in the students we are able to reach.
The Aim of The Junior Red Cross program is to teach juniors about the protection of life and health, service to the sick and suffering and international friendship. The program is a school-based program headed by patrons within the schools.
The program is a positive avenue for students to expand their passion to help others and give back to the community.

- Provides an outlet for the students to become involved in community service.
