Save lives and prevent injury by providing leadership and/or support to Disaster Cycle Services team members through our youth preparedness programs. Prepare With Pedro the Penguin and The Pillowcase Project are national youth preparedness programs offered by Red Cross regions across the country. The 30- or 60-minute presentation provides emergency preparedness education to youth in grades K-2 (ages 5-7) and 3-5 (ages 8-11) in school classrooms and other settings. Numerous tools have been developed for this program including a standardized curriculum, workbook, quizzes and activities which have been carefully constructed with the help of curriculum and hazard experts. Many tools for presenters have been developed to foster consistency and fidelity to the program goals and objectives. The highly interactive presentation addresses home fire safety, a local natural hazard, psycho-social coping skills and household preparedness steps like making a plan and a kit.

Worker roles include either being a presenter, presentation assistant, administrative support, or presenter trainer!
