This program focuses on living kidney donation by pairing wait listed kidney patients with trained mentors who are living donors or recipients of living donations. Through peer networking, education on living donation, training on sharing one's story and need, and the chance to speak with those who have experienced living donation, participants and their support people are equipped to pursue living donation in the way that is most suitable for them.
- Mentors are trained to be a support throughout the process of exploring living kidney transplant as a treatment option. Training includes basic info on living kidney donation and mentorship/communication tools.
- Before being matched with a mentor, patients attend three trainings covering basic living kidney donation info, tools for outreach, and understanding scope of this program.
