World Leadership School: Pace Academy TBIPOP Visit

We had the opportunity for another Teen Brain Injury Prevention Outreach Presentation (TBIPOP) day on June 7 when we hosted 2 terrific groups of kids from the Pace Academy in Atlanta, Georgia, and shared our dual messages of brain injury awareness and prevention.

The morning group
The afternoon group

Each group had a TBIPOP half day session: a presentation on who we are, what brain injury is, and what we do & a presentation targeted at preventing brain injury in young people, plus a group gross motor game (cornhole!). The rest of the blog will be photos from our great day, thank you for coming Pace Academy! You asked some of the best questions we have ever gotten, despite being younger than most groups we present to.

World Leadership School/Norfolk Academy TBIPOP Visit

We were excited to host this great group of young people from Norfolk Academy through the World Leadership School.
We started our day with an introduction to who we are & what we do.
After our TBIPOP we broke the ice with a gross motor skill building game (cornhole!).

After a lunch break it was time to work together to make dog biscuits for local animal shelters.

Special thanks for helping us out with some weeding!

We are always excited about sharing our messages of brain injury awareness and brain injury prevention. Thank you for coming, and please stay safe!
