HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAIN?

Creating Young Leaders

Over 8 – 12 weeks, our Young Leaders Programme supports young people aged 10 – 25 to explore the brain, body, thoughts and behaviours whilst also developing their digital, creative and media skills.

Backed by science, designed by our expert team in collaboration with young people and delivered through play-based interactive teaching methods, the programme supports young people to learn about themselves whilst giving them the confidence to support their peers.

WE WORK WITH THESE AMAZING ORGANISATIONS…

#gamesforbrains

We believe in the power of play as a tool to enhance learning for people of all ages. Which is why all of our programmes and games are built on the foundations of learning and fun, with play at the heart of all we do. 

We create games that support people of all ages to understand how their brain, body, thoughts and emotions are connected.

WE usE fun, laughter & play to ensure THAT

EVERY CHILD AND YOUNG PERSON

Understands the power of their brain

Has a safe space to learn about themselves and their mental health in a modern world

Has the confidence to support other young people around mental health and wellbeing

 

WHAT OUR YOUNG LEADERS ARE SAYING…

“I know what the Cerebellum is and what a Neuron is!”

Year 5, Neuro Champion Young Leader

After the first session I just felt like I’d been here for years. I felt like we were a team and we could conquer anything.”

Year 10, Neuro Champion Young Leader

I feel like it has had a profoundly positive impact on my life and I like the open environment that it creates for people to talk about their issues and mental health.

Year 12, Neuro Champion Young Leader

It teaches you about how to be more considerate about others.
