Whether you are here for a short time or an extended time, whether you are a first time volunteer or an experienced volunteer continuing to serve, the American Red Cross Camp Foster and those who benefit from your service will appreciate your time and sacrifice. Welcome to Okinawa!


There are many volunteer opportunities available to serve the community and gain work experience, everything from administrative and personnel management to assisting medical personnel and teaching. We have a variety of training programs including working as a Dental Assistant, Disaster Services, Instructor/Trainer, Emergency preparedness and Service to the Armed Forces. Check out our list of opportunities for examples of potential volunteer opportunities.

Thank you for volunteering with American Red Cross, we value you as part of our Red Cross team!

All volunteers are required to have a background check and complete online orientation before they can volunteer.

The first step to becoming a Red Cross volunteer is to register online with that big red button. In Volunteer Connection you will select a 'home' office (Camp Foster or Kadena).  This is where you will submit your information and attend an in-person orientation.  New volunteers should consider which volunteer position or programs they are interested in pursing when choosing a Red Cross office. ​
