Volunteer to Engage Youth Interested in Neuroethics

Why volunteer?

The field of neuroethics is relatively inaccessible to high school and undergraduate students. For a majority of participants, this will be their first exposure to neuroethics. By volunteering, you are giving passionate students interested in brain sciences an opportunity to explore neuroethics. Your contributions will help us offer an intensive learning session on the principles of neuroethics and impart foundational elements of scientific and ethical inquiry into the next generation of researchers and investigators. These activities are an excellent teaching and outreach opportunity for early-career educators and researchers.

What can I volunteer for?

There are two events you can volunteer for: Neuroethics Tournament and Neuroethics Workshop. The Neuroethics Tournament event has the volunteer roles of Judges and Youth Mentors. The Neuroethics Workshop event has the volunteer roles of Q&A Panelists and Youth Mentors. Volunteering for any of these roles is a fantastic way to connect with youth interested in neuroethics, foster new interest in the field, and accelerate the early career development of high school and undergraduate students. Below is more detailed information on both events and the volunteer roles you can sign up for. You can sign up for as many volunteer roles as you would like.
