  • Youth

Duties / Roles / Activities: Your top priority is donor safety and experience. You help create a positive, welcoming and comfortable donor experience by greeting donors with a smile, thanking them for their donation and making conversation. The care and attention you give is very often a key reason why donors return, leading to donor satisfaction and retention. As one of the last faces donors see on their way out, you play a critical role in the success of future blood donor clinics.

• Monitor donors for any post-donation reactions – you are our eyes and ears on the clinic floor
• Create a safe, positive and welcoming environment for donors
• Interact and engage in conversation with donors
Promote the Give Blood app

Sample Tasks: Provide snacks and refreshments to donors, post-donation
Sanitize high touch points such as tables and chairs
Wipe down the chairs in refreshment area after a donor departs (varies by region)
Encourage donors to sit for 5 minutes, not mandatory but preferred
Ensure donors eat or drink outside the donor centre as masks are always to be worn when in the centre
Stock up all food and drink items at the end of your shift on the table or counter; this makes it easier for the next volunteer when they arrive
Refer donors to our 1-888 number for any questions that you can’t answer (i.e. giving medical advice)
Promote the Give Blood app
