About the application process.
The application process for New York City is composed of two easy-to-complete components; this Applicant Questionnaire which takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and the registration process required to attend a live orientation. Please make sure you have enough time to finish this process in one sitting. (Total completion time: 30 minutes)
IMPORTANT: Once this questionnaire is complete, you will be automatically redirected to our Eventbrite page where you can select from a series of fun Orientation dates.
Please note: This application process is for individual adults over the age of 18. If you belong to a Community or Faith-Based group and would like to volunteer in partnership with the American Red Cross, do not fill out this application; instead view our Group Volunteer page.
