Are you looking for meaningful volunteer work?

The Danish Red Cross Youth is Denmark's largest humanitarian youth organization with more than 4500 volunteers, more than 200 on-going projects and more than 75 local development branches throughout the country. The purpose of The Danish Red Cross Youth is to improve the conditions and daily lives of vulnerable children and young people locally, nationally and internationally.

The Danish Red Cross Youth is an independent organization under the umbrella of the Danish Red Cross and the International Red Cross movement. The Danish Red Cross Youth is governed by a national board and organized in a number of volunteer-driven steering and thematic committees. The volunteer-driven activities are supported and facilitated by a secretariat, including 15 full-time advisors.

Activities include homework cafés, summer camps, mentor projects, telephone hotlines, sport and health projects, support for children at asylum and women crisis centers, clubs, study support to prisoners, simulation games, international exchange and development programmes and much more.

Currently, we have exchange and development programmes with Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies in Uganda, Zimbabwe, Jordan and Palestine. We also involve volunteers in several organizational activities, including fundraising projects, communication and PR, advocacy and human resources. Read articles about some of our activities.

We are always looking for more support, more members and more volunteers.
