Who are Friends for Life Ambassadors?
Carolina Donor Services’ Friends for Life Ambassadors are passionate advocates for organ, eye and tissue donation. They make a difference in the lives of thousands of people each year; spread the word about organ, eye and tissue donation; meet interesting people; and have fun while supporting the cause of donation. By volunteering with Carolina Donor Services, you can help bring hope to those awaiting a life-saving transplant.
Become a Volunteer
Each of our Ambassadors must receive training before volunteering with us. These trainings last approximately 2 hours and take place in our offices. Because we have found that our volunteers get the most out of trainings when they are in a group, if we do not have enough people sign up for a training date, we will cancel it.
Our need for volunteers is for those who have a direct connection to donation (ie: recipients, recipient family, donor family, or those on the waiting list). If you want to promote donation but do not have a direct connection or are a living donor please contact Donate Life North Carolina for volunteer opportunities. If you are looking for employment opportunities with Carolina Donor Services please click here.
Our volunteers share their stories of donation and transplantation at community events, work to register new donors at donor drives and health fairs and seek to spread the word about the importance of registering as a donor. They are expected to be the eyes and ears in their communities, always on the look out for new ways to reach people with the pro-donation message.
We cover a very large service area so opportunities to volunteer will require some travel.
You must RSVP for a training a minimum of 48 hours prior to the event by completing the volunteer interest form you will find here. You will receive a confirmation email at least 24 hours before your training. If you do not receive a confirmation, it means we have not received your RSVP and so please call 1.800.200.2672 to confirm availability.
Do you have an event coming up that you are in need of supplies for? Please request them here using the informational and/or promotional items request form.
