Are there any opportunities to volunteer abroad through the red shoe club?

And Red Cross aid is not limited to disaster relief; we also do other types of humanitarian work with a global impact. There are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved, whether it's donating, attending or teaching a class, or volunteering. Summer volunteer and community service programs for high school and high school students are a way to expand their view of the world and help others at the same time. Some volunteer programs take teens to places such as South America, Africa and Southeast Asia.

Others are closer to home in the United States, even around the corner. Volunteer programs often combine service with cultural or language immersion. Students can live in dorms, hostels, camps, or homestays, either in the United States or abroad. Programs can last as little as a week or last all summer.

Students can find opportunities to teach English, build homes, maintain trails, help with environmental problems, work in health care, or help the elderly, people with disabilities, or young children. These volunteer opportunities, like most Red Cross volunteer opportunities, are organized through the local Red Cross. These first responders are deployed around the world in various capacities together with the local organizations of the Red Cross, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross. My New Red Shoes (MNRS) works to improve the quality of life and well-being of children and young people who are experiencing economic difficulties.

Even the major disasters that dominate the news can often be managed by that country's Red Cross or Red Crescent organization. In collaboration with USA for UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency), My New Red Shoes contributes to this urgent humanitarian effort by preparing more than 100,000 pairs of donated boots to be delivered to refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine.
