Module 1: Student Kick-off Event! This module is delivered by a variety of Unyts Staff and community guest speakers who will provide a general overview/explanation of the Donate Life Club, how to recruit for your blood drive, participate in a survey, campaign ideas, leadership role as a club member, resume tips and much more! Guest speakers touched by organ donation will share their stories, and students will learn about the Unyts scholarship program.
Module 2: Tour /Speaker- This will vary for each participating school
- Option 1: Tour of Unyts- This module will involve a visit to Unyts’ facility at 110 Broadway, in Buffalo, where students will be given a guided tour, a chance to meet and speak with Unyts professionals about careers and learn about the role they play.
- Option 2: Guest Speaker- Unyts will send a trained volunteer to your school to share their story of how they have been touched by donation.
Module 3- Campaign Planning and Marketing: This module was designed to help the students take what they learned from Modules 1 & 2 and start to brainstorm as to how they will apply that knowledge to develop a campaign in their school. Campaigns typically run during the months of March and April. During this module, each participating school will receive club tee shirts and school wide incentives.
Module 4- Campaign Week: This module, which will transpire over the course of one week in March or April, involves the actual implementation of the awareness campaign. Donate Life Club students will be busy conducting all of the activities and events that were “built in” as components of the awareness campaign.
Module 5 – Recognizing our Scholarship Recipients: We would like to recognize our seniors, who were awarded a Unyts Scholarship by attending your schools award ceremony, class day, etc. We will also recognize Donate Life Club students during this time with a certificate and Unyts pin.
Module 6: Contest: Each year Unyts will assign the clubs an end-of-the-year project. Details will be outlined throughout the year!
