To meet this objective, The Living Legacy Foundation has developed a High School Educator’s Toolkit to help share organ and tissue donation information with Maryland students. The toolkit includes information for teachers, sample lesson plans, reproducible materials and supplemental multimedia resources.
The LLF believes educating high school students about donation and giving them the opportunity to ask questions will help dispel common myths and provide them with enough information to make an informed donation decision upon obtaining a driver’s license or state identification card through the Maryland MVA.
Staff or a trained volunteer from The LLF are available to speak about donation in schools, as well as other public settings, completely free of charge. Some examples of appropriate forums in which we are available to speak include, but are not limited to:
- High school and college classes
- Speakers are willing to speak either in individual classes or in an assembly setting. It is not uncommon for staff to speak to multiple classes in one day, so don’t hesitate to ask!
- Student organization meetings
- Teacher’s conferences
- PTA meetings
- Driver’s education classes
- Staff meetings
The Living Legacy Foundation is also happy to work with students who are in need of service learning hours on a variety of donation-related projects.
To request a free copy of the High School Educator’s Toolkit, schedule a presentation, or coordinate a donation-related service learning project, please contact Lauren Muskauski at firstname.lastname@example.org, 410-242-7000 x 2005.
The toolkit is also available on our website if you are an educator and would like to download a copy.
