Since 2009, educators on over 300 colleges and universities have utilized the Chavez Challenge as a platform for students to organize on a positive platform of promoting health education, health & science careers, civic engagement, and blood donation as a means to help save lives!  This annual, campus-wide, and growing event continues to help develop cohorts, create collaboration among student groups, and develop a sense of campus community.  Students who have lead the campaign on their campus have grown as leaders and role models; even won $1000 scholarships!  We encourage you to consider facilitating for your students to join the National Cesar E. Chavez Blood Drive Challenge.

We believe that it is a transitional experience for any person to become a blood donor. Either you are a blood donor or you are not; and we believe that as Cesar E. Chavez demonstrated true commitment towards helping others, so can your students by participating in the selfless act of blood donation.  We believe that this simple act of kindness will help towards the transformation of your students into the leaders of tomorrow.

Staff and Faculty on every U.S.  college campus may serve as Event Advisers holding three primary responsibilities:

  1. To select/approve the Student Organizer by signing the Student Organizer application
  2. To verify the Student Organizer’s full-time enrollment status and cum GPA
  3. To support the event as a resource and council for the Student Organizer

See Support Tools to download Student Organizer & Scholarship Application, manual and other forms/tools.
