Every year in Minnesota, tens of thousands of young people apply for their first driver’s license or state identification card and are presented with the opportunity to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor. Often, this may be one of the first adult decisions they make.
To help ensure that students have the information they need to make the decision that’s best for them, state law requires that all drivers’ education programs (public, private and commercial) include 30 minutes of instruction on organ, eye and tissue donation. We are committed to helping you fulfill that mandate and proudly offer materials free of charge with our program titled “Make Your Mark: Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation.”
These materials were tailored for driver’s education programs and many of them can easily be adapted to other classroom or educational settings. We welcome educator involvement and look forward to collaborating with you. If you can’t find what you’re looking for please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
This curriculum was developed in collaboration by LifeSource, Minnesota Lions Eye Bank and American Donor Services, produced by LaPalm & Company Productions and is supported by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety’s You & $2 grant program.
