Here we are internationally
The Red Cross is an international movement, and we are always present, when there are people in need. The Danish Red Cross Youth is a part of this movement, but does not not provide emergency aid. We collaborate with The Danish Red Cross to create development in places where it is particularly difficult to be young. For several years we have been represented in Greenland, Africa, The Middle East and Eastern Europe.
How can I join?
There are so many options to help making the world a better place for young people – even if you are based in Denmark.
We involve volunteers in Denmark in organizational activities, fundraising projects, communication and PR, advocacy and human resources.
You can also host volunteers from other Red Cross and Red Crescent societies from around the world who are visiting Denmark, and you can support our Danish volunteers going abroad.

Can I travel with The Danish Red Cross Youth?
Unfortunately, we only need very few volunteers going abroad. When in other countries, our volunteers support our international projects by helping the local youth organizing and starting up projects.
Usually we choose volunteers who are already acquainted with The Danish Red Cross Youth and our work. All our international volunteer jobs will be posted on our website. It is not possible to apply unsolicited.
Who are we collaborating with abroad?
In our international projects we are always working closely with The Danish Red Cross. We are collaborating with the respective Red Cross and Red Crescent society in the country. For instance, on our projects in Greenland, we are teaming up with Greenlandic Red Cross and their youth project INUA.
The local partnership ensures both the sustainability of the project and ensures a focus on the most important needs in the individual local area.
that we occasionally send Danish youth leaders to partner countries? Here they work with locals to promote the conditions of young people in the area?
