The Indian Red Cross Society serves as an auxiliary to the state authorities engaged in social welfare activities accepting the rules and regulations of the state, but at the same time maintaining, its autonomy so that it can act always in accordance with the fundamental principles. The Youth Red Cross is the most important constituent of its mother organization, Indian Red Cross. It is a group movement organized at the initial stages for students between 18 and 25 years of age within the colleges. A qualified lecturer is recognized as the leader and he is called as the Programme Officer. Under his guidance, the students are trained and encouraged to manage the affairs of the group, electing their own office-bearers. The main purpose of organizing the Youth Red Cross is to inculcate social welfare activities in Youth of our country.
