Our future depends on the imagination of our youth

Over the past four years the Avielle Foundation has garnered an amazing group of innovative, forward thinking, and engaged youth that has evolved into TAF’s Internship Program. TAF interns have the ranged from 14 to 24 years old and live across the country (and sometimes outside the U.S.). We are fortunate to have their insight and help to champion our mission. TAF Interns have been lending insights to understanding the neural basis of violence and compassion as well as educating communities about brain health. Additionally, they have brought to the forefront a wide range of skills and interests including, education into how a non-profit functions, marketing, website design, merchandise, branding, fundraising management, program design, operations and obviously scientific research. The internship program now offers opportunities in all of these areas and would like to use an individual’s unique skills and interests to benefit the foundation as well as provide the intern with life skills in future fields of brain health study. College recommendations, work experience, publications, chances for junior/senior high school projects, lab research, mentoring opportunities, travel awards, and scholarships are some of the benefits of the internship program.
