Event Details

By Invitation Only.

Continue Your Red Cross Journey!

Please join us for our first ever MEGA Orientation & Training Session. In a relaxed, fun and friendly setting, you'll get a brief overview of our national and local capacity to respond to disasters followed by and in-depth overview of our local NYC volunteer opportunities. Then, those who know they've found what they're looking for, can stay for the first class required of all new volunteers (Disaster Services: An Overview).

If you find that the Red Cross does not offer what you are looking for, you are not required to stay for the class.

This MEGA session will feature a very special guest appearance by Josh Lockwood, our Regional CEO as well as live presentations by our exciting Program/Volunteer Managers. Refreshments will be served.

Each Orientation/Training session is a fast-moving 4 hours in length (approx).
