Volunteer Opportunity with the Columbia Synapse Peer Buddy Program

Columbia Synapse is looking for volunteers to join their Peer Buddy Program. This is a unique volunteer opportunity to help a vulnerable community of individuals with brain injury in New York City.

Acquired brain injury (ABI) is any brain injury received after birth and it affects millions of Americans. These injuries can come from traumatic circumstances, like falling, or from nontraumatic causes, like tumors. At Columbia Synapse, their mission is to support people with ABI and other invisible disabilities.

With the buddy program, you are paired with an ABI buddy to provide support and meet a new friend! You would get to have regular meetings with your buddy and get to know them and their story. For their student buddies, Columbia Synapse looks for individuals who are empathetic, mature, and patient. Student buddies are expected to keep up with ABI buddies regularly and should feel prepared for new interactions with possibly unexpected behavior.

If you would like to be added to a waitlist to become a student buddy, please fill out this form indicating your preferences and availability.

If you have any questions, please email Columbia Synapse.
