School Programs

School Presentations

We're one of few organizations invited to make presentations in Central Okanagan schools. We appreciate this opportunity. Our goal is to reach students at a young age. This gives us the best chance of instilling lifelong habits that help prevent brain injury.
 
Our school presentations cover:
  • basic information on brain function
  • the brain as the 'control centre' of the body
  • the importance of 'safe' vs. 'foolish' risks
  • actions youth can take to prevent brain injury
We make our presentations as interactive as possible, and like to include prizes, too. BrainTrust also participates in Bike Rodeos at Kelowna elementary schools. We bring handouts and offer helmets to youth who need them.

We participate in the Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth  Program held at Kelowna General Hospital. BrainTrust provides a meaningful presentation on brain injury and the importance of prevention. High school students learn about the serious consequences of drinking and driving and distracted driving.
BrainTrust Brain Bright Day

June 18th is a day to celebrate our amazing brains and learn how youth can prevent serious brain injuries. Join the movement and spread the word to prevent brain injuries.

A key outcome of our GenZ Prevention Project was the development of a toolkit for middle schools that addresses the subject of Youth and Concussion.

This toolkit for teachers has five components:

  • teacher guide with overview, background knowledge, and additional resources
  • practical inquiry-based lesson sequence fully integrated with the BC Physical and Health Education Curriculum; applicable for Grades 6 through 9
  • activity handbook to support lessons
  • PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes
  • student portfolio

This program is currently being implemented in Central Okanagan School District No. 23 and select private and charter schools.

The complete toolkit is available for download here.

Contact us for more information.
