Membership Badges of Japanese Youth Red Cross Society /青少日本赤十字社章

The Junior Red Cross was established in 1922 in the hope of encouraging younger generations to cultivate their humanitarian spirit by understanding the Red Cross principles and ideas, and by participating actively in the Movement. The overarching idea behind the Junior Red Cross is to enable the country's youth, so that they may one day contribute, in their own way, to the establishment of world peace and the welfare of Mankind.

The Japanese Red Cross Society aims to teach students the value of life and health, as well as the importance of respecting human dignity. School teachers act as sponsors for the Red Cross. Through them, the Junior Red Cross is present at all pre-university academic levels, including kindergarten and schools for children with special needs. It makes its programs available to students during their formative years and in tandem with their academic education. The Junior Red Cross aims to teach its members to "notice, think and act". It does so by providing activities relating to the following three areas: "protection of life and health " (protecting a human life regardless of race, ethnicity and/or religion, and promoting health and hygiene), "volunteer services "(community and humanitarian service) and "international understanding and friendship " (international sensitivity i.e. teaching children how to be sensitive to and adaptable in other cultures).​
