The cornerstone of the OTDA curricular package is the award-winning 178-page classroom toolkit. Aligned with the Pennsylvania Academic Standards, this interdisciplinary teaching tool is easy to use and completely reproducible for immediate use in the secondary education setting. The OTDA Project hosts an annual mini grant competition for Pennsylvania secondary schools to encourage teachers to implement the OTDA Curriculum Toolkit in their classroom. Awards of up to $5,000 are given. The kit contains teacher-developed lesson plans, resources, and real-life stories from across Pennsylvania.

Partnerships in Pennsylvania are critical to the success of the OTDA Project. Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) in PA offer many free services to local community groups, schools, and individuals. Among these are guest speakers, assembly and presentation coordination, field trips, information for senior projects, fundraising events, and incentive products. They can also put your school in touch with High School Students for Organ Donation, a national student organization.
