Calling All Volunteers

A perk of being a DLI volunteer- hanging out with Morgan.

One of the most important parts of the Donate Life Illinois team is the active and committed volunteers. DLI volunteers connect with individuals across the state to encourage members of their community to join the Illinois Organ/Tissue Donor Registry. By hosting donor registration stations, making a presentation at a public speaking engagement, or providing office support, you can help increase the number of registered organ and tissue donors in Illinois.

Are you interested in helping? First, submit a Volunteer Application. All new volunteers must attend Volunteer Training before participating in any DLI events. During the training, you will learn about organ/tissue donation stats, frequently asked questions, volunteer expectations and the best ways to speak about the subject. Also, check out this previous post on DLI Volunteer Coordinator Jane Lee-Zimmer for more information.

To get started as a DLI volunteer, please attend one of the upcoming Volunteer Training sessions :
