Many volunteer opportunities are available through DonorConnect, Utah’s federally designated organ procurement organization. Our volunteers help with health fairs, speak to service organizations, and help with special projects. Public education is crucial to our mission and our volunteers are an integral part of this effort. We are always looking for new volunteers and also those willing to work with the media as part of news stories, TV spots, etc.
If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to us either by phone at 1-801-521-1755 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to know a little about you such as your connection to donation or what prompted you to volunteer for us.
To get started, we have some basic paperwork we will email to you. It includes a volunteer information sheet, a confidentiality statement, a safety form, and a consent form. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about these forms.
We hold volunteer training quarterly and hope that you will be able to attend one of these training meetings. We will also mail you an introductory packet with a video about donation and some other information we hope you will find helpful. You will be working with an experienced volunteer for your first few volunteer opportunities. If you are unable to make it to a training meeting or need the training sooner, we can often work out an alternate training plan.
In addition to volunteer opportunities, we are always happy to work with boy scouts who are working on their eagle project or would like to earn the Donor Awareness Patch and girl scouts who are working on their Gold Award project. Check out this video that was created by girl scout Shaylee Bradbury for her Gold Award project.
