PRINCETON, NJ - The American Red Cross New Jersey Region will host a series of Youth Leadership Conferences this summer, with the first four-day event occurring July 10 - 13 in Summit. Other conferences will be held in Ocean, Princeton and Sewell. Each four-day conference runs Monday to Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is open to students entering grades 9 through 12. Student attendees will receive a certificate for 24 hours of community service.

“Youth are the future of American Red Cross,” said Ana Montero, CEO, American Red Cross New Jersey Region. “In addition to learning life-safe CPR skills, students will realize the capacity of their potential by participating in empowering activities designed to equip them with the skills and tools to become successful young leaders in our communities.”

Participants will receive Red Cross First Aid, CPR and AED training and certification. The 'Be Red Cross Ready' course teaches students how to help their communities prepare for and respond to emergencies. Students will also complete leadership activities that will help them explore cultural diversity, learn the importance of teamwork and identify different leadership styles. A hands-on 'Raid Cross' simulation that teaches the principles of International Humanitarian Law and information about how to start a Red Cross Club, are also included at each four-day conference.
