Subject: Brain Exercise Initiative: Virtual Volunteer Opportunity
Looking for a way to help your community during the pandemic? Interested in
neuroscience and volunteer work?
The Brain Exercise Initiative is a student-run non-profit organization that
uses math, reading, and writing as a form of cognitive development for the
elderly. It is found that simple math exercises and reading for just 30
minutes a day can have a positive impact on memory for those with
Alzheimer's. We currently have chapters at 50 universities including UCLA,
Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, Notre Dame, Brown, and numerous others. We go to
retirement homes for about 30-45 minutes a day and do simple math, read
aloud, and writing exercises with the seniors.
We are currently looking for volunteers to be a part of our non-profit. As a
volunteer, you would virtually meet with the seniors at retirement homes and
hold these exercises with them. If you have an interest in neuroscience and
Alzheimer’s and enjoy volunteering with elders, we encourage you to apply!
We would love to have committed people on our team. Applications are due on
Friday, December 18th. Apply here: ter.ps/bei2020
