At Donor Alliance, our volunteers are a vital component in fulfilling our mission to save lives through organ and tissue donation. Our “Advocates for Life” volunteer program strives to offer numerous introductory training classes, specialized messaging and speech writer’s workshops, in addition to presentations from our expert staff on the processes of organ and tissue donation. We aim to provide a multitude of training and educational opportunities throughout the year to equip our volunteers with the greatest skills and knowledge base in order to best advocate action towards registering organ and tissue donors throughout Colorado and Wyoming. Advance sign up for all training classes is required. Confirmation e-mails will be sent to you one week prior to training. A minimum of at least 5 Advocates is required for training. All Advocate training sessions will be held on a virtual platform until further notice.

Introduction to Speakers Bureau

This workshop is designed for Advocates who desire to work on developing their stories in a safe and supportive environment. As a group we will discuss the importance of: setting the tone, knowing your audience, evaluating your opportunity, repetition with structure, phrases and key words.
