Yes, Students Can Save Lives!

The State of Ohio requires students to learn about organ, eye and tissue donation as part of the district’s health curriculum.  We want to make it as easy as possible for teachers to prepare students to make a well-informed donation decision.

Choose your teaching method:

1. Have one of our experts teach the lesson for you, sharing information directly from Donate Life Ohio.

Lifeline of Ohio’s student-centered program provides an overview of the donation process, what can be donated and the facts surrounding organ, eye and tissue donation. Because donation and transplantation is an every changing science, when you invite our educators into your classroom (either virtually or in-person) they are able to share accurate, up-to-date information with your students. Our goal is to ensure students have the information they need to make an informed decision when asked “Do you want to be an organ, eye and tissue donor?” at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).

Additionally, we want students to understand the importance of sharing their donation decision with their family. To schedule a virtual or in-person program with Lifeline of Ohio, please use the form below.

2. Request materials from Donate Life Ohio designed specifically to help you teach the lesson yourself.
