The Youth Red Cross of Sree Sarswathi Thyagaraja College aims not only to bring a host of programs for students, but also ensures that the programs are an experience worth learning for all the students. Our college students constitute a substantial part of the membership of Red Cross for its humanitarian commitment. They make significant contributions to the needs of the most vulnerable people within their local communities through their Red Cross youth program. The Programme has been designed to involve young people as much as possible in the movement and its activities not as workers and beneficiaries, but as partners in management.
The program focuses on the following areas:
- Promote life and health through training and education on safety, primary health care and healthy living
- Encourage community service through training and education
- Disseminate the seven fundamental principles of Red Cross and Red Crescent movement through activities that encourage the Red Cross ideals
