The Red Cross offers learning-in-action opportunities for the lifecycle of a student; from educational programming in early childhood to the lifelong leadership skills developed at higher education levels. Here you'll learn about our Pint-Size Hero (K-5) and Future Blood Donor (6-8) programs.
The Pint-Size Hero and Future Blood Donor programs are educational programs that features student, teacher and parent involvement. The programs target schools and other organizations for students in K-8 grades. As a part of the program students are taught about blood components, the function of blood and the need for blood donors. The programs includes grade-level appropriate curriculum and classroom activities along with planning, donor recruitment and recognition tools to support the blood drive program.
Students will be recognized by recruiting their parents, family members and other adults to donate blood at their school or organization's blood drive. Here is an overview with a brief description of the toolkit.
