BrainTrust Canada Association


The teacher candidates will be involved with BrainTrust Canada’s Skullwise Program, an educational program that aims to reduce preventable brain injury in youth. Encouraged by the success of the Skullwise Program in elementary schools in past years, BrainTrust plans to extend the program to secondary schools in 2022. The teacher candidates will be responsible for meeting the following objectives:

• Adapt the existing program and toolkit for secondary school students

• Help coordinate delivery of the program to Central Okanagan secondary schools

• Hold a virtual video contest for secondary school students

• Revise existing measurement tools to gauge program effectiveness with this age group

Candidates will work with the agency in a blended format. While most of the work will be completed virtually, there will be opportunity for occasional in-person meetings.

Associated Costs: Teacher candidates will need to have access to transit or a vehicle and be responsible for their own travel expenses to and from the BrainTrust office, as well as travel within the community as needed. Candidates will also be responsible for their own meals for the duration of the placement.
