You Are The IYNA

Thank you for your interest in working with the International Youth Neuroscience Association. There are many benefits to joining the IYNA. We fosters an environment where it is easy make connections with other students who are also interested in neuroscience, allowing your passion for neuroscience to grow. In addition, all members of the IYNA can work on the MYELIN Initiative, submit articles to the IYNA journal, and apply for positions within the IYNA. And that's not all: The IYNA is working on expanding the opportunities we provide to members, with ideas such as mentorship programs with college students and a platform for high school students to intern with researchers at lab.

We also encourage you to start an IYNA chapter club at your school or community. Essentially, IYNA Chapter Clubs will focus on sharing a passion for neuroscience with more students at our schools. This can be done through countless means, including watching videos on the brain, studying neuroscience, discussing neurological topics such as the origin of consciousness, or debating the ethics of pressing issues. All clubs will have self-autonomy, and be considered official chapters of the IYNA, providing an international network for students to connect with each other. Our organization will help in the development of chapter clubs and to create a network of like-minded neuroscientists with whom you can work. If you are interested in founding a chapter club at your school, please email to receive more information on the club establishment process.

Our organization has already received endorsements with various prominent neuroscientific groups such as the Society for Neuroscience and Neuroscience News. Joining the IYNA will put you in the spotlight as a member of the nation's premier neuroscience organization for young adults.

Any individuals interested in working with the IYNA in an advisory capacity should contact us via with your resume attached.
