Each new volunteer who attends a training session will receive a manual with facts, figures and answers to common questions about donation, as well as helpful hints for effectively working with the public.
For example, you will learn:
- Who can become a donor?
- What are some upcoming volunteer opportunities?
- What is the Michigan Organ Donor Registry and how does it work?
- What is Gift of Life Michigan?
- and much more!
Participating in a volunteer training webinar or the in-person training is ideal, but we recognize that schedules may not permit it. As an alternative, Gift of Life offers a 30-minute training video and a short quiz. Please email your completed quiz to Gift of Life's volunteer coordinators to confirm you have completed the training.
In addition to our general volunteer trainings, we periodically offer specialized webinar trainings for our volunteers. One of those specialized webinars is an annual collaboration between Gift of Life Michigan and Eversight on using traditional and social media to promote organ, tissue and eye donation. You can watch the videos from 2020, 2019 and 2018 on our YouTube channel.
Our colleagues at Donate Life America provide some great story sharing tips, as well as ideas on using your perspective to motivate others to donate life.
