School Programs

Are you a teacher or student wanting to share information about organ donation with you classroom? BC Transplant has some resources for you!

There are a lot of misconceptions about organ donation. We believe the more we educate people about what it means to register as an organ donor, and the lifesaving benefits of transplantation, the more lives we have the potential of saving. 

Classroom Opportunities

Transplant recipients and/or BC Transplant staff are available to speak to your classroom about the importance of organ donation, answer questions, and dispel common myths and misconceptions. 


If you would like to book a speaker for your school, please email info@bct.phsa.ca


 

A campaign kit for your classroom or a presentation with some posters, pens, buttons and fact sheets is a great way to help your classmates understand organ donation. Order your kit by emailing info@bct.phsa.ca. ‎
