The program

Pillowcase Project is a disaster resilience education program design to help children prepare psychologically and practically for an emergency. Aimed at students in Grades 3 and 4, the one hour workshop involves engaging discussions and interactive activities to help students: understand and discuss the importance of being prepared for an emergency and prepare their minds for thoughts and feelings that may arise before, during or after an emergency.

The opportunity

Being involved in the Pillowcase Project program you will deliver engaging educational workshops within primary schools to build knowledge about emergency preparedness and capacity in the event of a disaster. As a humanitarian organisation, the role of Red Cross in an emergency is to provide support to individuals and communities to reduce the impact and effects of a disaster. This includes assisting people to psychologically and practically prepare for an emergency.

**The impact **

As an Emergency Ready Primary School Workshop Facilitator, you’ll help children to be better prepared and more resilient when emergencies happen. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.
