go site Brain Awareness Montreal is divided into 10 committees, staffed entirely by volunteers:
Brain Awareness Week
MNI Open House
Apprenticeship in Neuroscience
During Brain Awareness Week, university students give over 375 presentations in classrooms, reaching over 8000 kids across Montreal! These presentations are organized by four school committees composed of two VPs each, who are in charge of coordinating with schools according to the grade of the classroom visited and the language of the school. Their work is essential in making Brain Awareness Week one of our biggest yearly activities. The responsibility of each team is to contact schools to organize presentations, and also to assign and train volunteers to present during Brain Awareness Week. The four committees work mostly independently, but they join efforts to prepare the brains and kits that our volunteers bring to the presentations.
