The Power of Peer! The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado is starting a Peer Mentorship Program! Have you ever been inspired to give back to other brain injury survivors as someone who “has been there?” Have you ever thought your life could improve by talking to someone that “really understands because they know what it is like to have a brain injury?”
The Peer Mentorship Program is looking for volunteers!
The program will span up to a year in duration, with weekly phone or video conference contacts, and if possible a monthly community activity (dependent upon proximity, transportation and personal budgets). The program is designed to support survivors explore resiliency, define what it means to thrive, and then to take steps in this direction.
Currently interested volunteer mentors and mentees are being added to a waitlist (the first training will be scheduled for this coming spring). Additionally, we have opportunities for BI survivors to participate with focus groups to guide the development of the program.
If you are interested or would like to learn more, please contact Seija (pronounced Sayyah) Curtin at Seija@BIAColorado.org or 303-223-0731.
