MIT Students – Apply to be a BrainTrust Buddy!

Do you want to be more involved in community outreach?

The application to become a BrainTrust Buddy is due this Sunday, September 24 at midnight. Apply here!

MIT BrainTrust, part of the growing national organization Synapse, is a student-run service organization whose primary aim is to serve individuals with brain injuries in the Greater Boston area. To support these individuals, we organize a variety of events such as social gatherings (ex: trips to the Museum of Fine Arts, picnics at MIT) and technology help sessions. We also have a unique buddy program, where we directly pair students and individuals with brain injuries in order to provide these individuals with further guidance, immediate advice, and friendship. Furthermore, we strive to educate the community about brain-related disorders through panel lectures featuring physicians, researchers, and patients; discussion panels; and brain injury awareness booths.

Learn more about BrainTrust and being a buddy this Thursday, September 21 at 7pm in 1-375.
