CPR for Life

When Dylan learned that his uncle might still be alive today if someone nearby knew how to administer CPR, he immediately decided to do something about it. Dylan convinced his family to join him in becoming CPR certified. Merit College Advisors helped Dylan create CPR for Life and guided him as he set up his high school’s first CPR program for 9th grade students. To make all of Santa Cruz County a safer place to be for heart attack victims, Dylan launched a countywide program. He recruited CPR instructors from the American Red Cross, American Heart Association, UCSC, and local fire departments. One of Dylan’s biggest lessons was organizing all of the volunteers’ schedules with high school class schedules. Dylan also managed to get donations from local businesses to pay for the manikin shields and certification cards. He hopes to make CPR certification part of high school graduation requirements. Imagine if every high school student becomes CPR certified? We could save 325,000 lives per year!
