Adventures of Red Cross Super Heroes


Recently, there occurred a gathering not seen since the days of the Justice League…that’s right…I’m talking about Red Cross Clubs across the county joining forces at Leadership Training!

With super-human powers, these high school students defeated the dreaded Public Speaking enemy. Veteran Club Red Delegates transformed into mentors and shared their Public Speaking prowess with peers.  Through only the strength of their words, Club Members managed to sell seemingly worthless items to the entranced audience.

The breath-taking feats did not stop there. Led by the hilarity and genius of Monty Python, these titans of strength learned the power of Conflict Resolution. Now armed with knowledge, our heroes can confront conflict with confidence and maturity.

The next obstacle tackled was the deceivingly simplistic Goal Setting. We know our super heroes want to save the word, but how? Set some SMART goals!

S – Specific M – Measurable A – Attainable R – Realistic T – Timely

With the powers of Conflict Resolution, Public Speaking and Goal Setting, our superheroes are ready to set out on another Red Cross adventure!

All those heroes unable to attend the Leadership Training have no fear! Mark your calendars for January 14th from 4 – 7pm and meet us in Santa Barbara (2707 State St.) or Santa Maria (3030 Skyway Dr.) for another daring adventure!
