Exciting new Red Cross program for Youth! Youth in Emergency Services (YES!) is the first of its kind and we want you to be a part of it!
The YES! Program trains Red Cross high school students to be Disaster Volunteers and assist during a community disaster.
Our first ever YES! Disaster Training will be held on Saturday, February 26th from 11am – 4pm at the Santa Barbara office. Another YES! Disaster Training will be offered at the Santa Maria office in September; date and time will be announced later. There are only 21 spots available in the February training, so if you are interested, sign up now! Here’s how to get involved:
