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 in Volunteer Connection thru the link at the bottom of this page.

In Volunteer Connection you will select a 'home' office (Camp Foster or Kadena).  This is where you will interview and submit your information.  New volunteers should consider which volunteer position or programs they are interested in pursing when choosing a Red Cross office.
