CodeR Classmates

Teaching students about the importance of organ, tissue and eye donation.

Welcome to CodeR

CodeR, or Classmates for Organ Donation Education and Registration, is a new educational program that helps teach high school students in Wisconsin about the importance of organ, tissue and eye donation. CodeR is FREE* and meets state-approved curriculum standards for topics including organs, tissues, blood and the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices.

Each participating teacher receives a digital teaching guide, complete with PowerPoint presentations and support materials for five teaching sessions. During the classroom orientation conducted by a Versiti Organ and Tissue CodeR coordinator, students receive a handbook to accompany the teaching session. Everything is provided at no cost to the school or student.

The program finale includes an onsite tour of Versiti headquarters that students, teachers and volunteers won’t soon forget.

*Cost is dependent on your school’s field trip transportation costs.
