The RCC model involves a core group of students in each high school, who, under direction of Red Cross staff and Teacher Sponsors, receive training in HIV prevention education, Disaster Preparedness, First Aid/CPR/AED, leadership styles and techniques, and International Humanitarian Law. These students then are encouraged and guided in developing and sharing what they have learned with peers and the overall community through school-wide presentations, including ?Red Cross Days?, service projects, and other events during the school year and in the summer. The Red Cross Club Facilitator leads the after-school program in at least four of the 18 Philadelphia high schools.
