The work of the Youth Commission is centred around consultations and advocacy for young people to ensure young peoples’ interests are included in our decision-making and planning.
Junior Red Cross Clubs
The Junior Red Cross (JRC) Club program are conducted in various schools in Fiji where we train teachers to run activities in their schools that are derived from our three core programs: Disaster, Health and Care and Safety.
Club 25 is responsible for the advocacy and support for non-remunerated blood donations. They organise activities that raise visibility and awareness of blood donations, highlighting how we play an important role of saving lives by donating blood voluntarily.
National Youth Forum
The forum forms part of Fiji Red Cross Society’s overall strategy to develop Youth as Agents of Behavioural Change (YABC) and is aligned to the FRCS Strategic Plan 2015 – 2019 Goals 1 & 2, IFRC strategy 2020 and is congruent with Fiji’s National Youth Policy. The Society recognises that young people comprise a significant proportion of the population and including them in developmental as well as community planning and activities will enhance a stronger social structure and resilience of communities.
