The Montserrat Red Cross (MRC) is pleased to announce the relaunch of its much-anticipated Youth Program.
Our first induction sessions were held on Thursday, 4th February 2020 and Saturday, 6th February 2020 at the MRC building in Brades. A total of twelve (12) youths between the ages of 12-18 were in attendance on Thursday, while fourteen (14) were present on Saturday. The induction sessions were held to not only welcome our young volunteers, but to inform them on the history of the Red Cross Movement and its Principles. The youths, who were eager for knowledge, were actively engaged throughout the presentations on both days.
The Montserrat Red Cross’s Youth Programme is geared towards active voluntarism within youths. Creating a youth focused space within the Red Cross Movement, we also hope to support capacity building and development in various spheres of the lives of young persons in Montserrat. In addition, we aim to ensure that they are equipped with the relevant knowledge and skills to become actively involved in community service.
If you or any youth you know who are interested to be apart of this program, please contact the MRC office on 664 491-2699/3799 for more information.
