Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
The beginning of the awareness week started with a social media and community campaign with the engagement of the students, as well as giving high school students puzzle games to prepare their mind and make them observe the event throughout the week.
The second day of the program was a symposium for the high school where the students learned about basic information concerning the brain, useful activities to cultivate as healthy habits for the brain memory through learning, and also warning against drug abuse and addiction. On day 3, members of the national youth service corps had a 90-minute online symposium via zoom for sensitization on brain health and how to channel the creativity of their minds to advancing communities around them through making peace and unity with people.
On the last day of the organized brain awareness week 2022 program, dwellers of the local community of my service were gathered and taught about stroke and the brain’s coordination of the body as well as our activities.

Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
The benefit of participation has been an exposure of young minds to potentials within them through the use of their brain. It has serve as an encouragement to some as they now believe no one is enough to make them feel less important in how they make decisions and they are able to practice good habits of living.
The immediate outcome was the elevation of people’s esteem of themselves.
