“I serve” is the motto of Junior and Youth Red Cross (JYRC). As an integral part of the Nepal Red Cross Society, Junior and Youth Red Cross is playing a significant role in providing humanitarian services in the community and expanding the organization in educational institutions and communities.

The goal of the Junior and Youth Red Cross is to promote the managerial capability of the Juniors and Youths and develop them as volunteer workers for their own benefit by affiliating them to Red Cross.

Junior and Youth Red Cross was established on 5 March 1965 after the inception of Nepal Red Cross Society in Nepal. In the educational institutions and communities of all the districts of Nepal Junior and Youth Red Cross Circles are organized, developed and extended as networks extensively.

Juniors and Youths are an inseparable organ of Nepal Red Cross Society. JYRC members are working together with multiple partners for constructive and perceptive development for the young generation. Working areas include for example Youth Delegate exchange Programs, WASH in schools, school-based First Aid, reproductive health-related programs, migration, and human trafficking projects, climate change adaptation and urbanization.
