What is Cruz Roja?

The American Red Cross Hispanic Outreach Program (Cruz Roja) has the goal to teach, prepare and assist the Hispanic community in the face of emergencies and disasters. We teach all Red Cross certified materials in Spanish and English to interested community members.

We also participate in Home Fire Campaigns where we go door to door offering free installation of smoke detectors and teach fire safety.

How do I get involved?

Email cruzroja@byu.edu for more information.

Volunteer Commitment:

We meet 1-3 hours every week. We aim to teach two classes a month in the community. The week before each class there will be a training to prep the volunteers on what to teach. Watch for emails and Facebook updates for information about training meetings.

Community classes will be held on the off-weeks at churches or community centers in Utah County. Volunteers usually carpool to the site together.

Training:

Please complete this mandatory 25 minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with this program.
