Save lives and gain leadership skills as an official advocate for blood donation on your college campus.


Enroll in our lifesaving mission. The Leaders for Life Campus Program is a club designed to give collegiate students an opportunity to gain leadership experience and save lives as an advocate for blood donation.

In addition to saving lives as a blood donation advocate, participating students, schools and communities will benefit from increased student/community collaboration and leadership coaching – critical for young adults preparing to enter a competitive workforce.
