Grise for Aphasia is an organization that recognizes the lack of knowledge and attention regarding aphasia - a disorder caused by neurological damage that affects speech production.

We aim to support those with aphasia through various projects, such as producing tailored videos for aphasia patients in partnership with industry-leading experts and aphasia organizations, all while addressing the lack of social interaction in the aphasia population by hosting friendly events/calls with those with aphasia. As a baseline, we will raise awareness for aphasia (through workshops, providing opportunities to get involved in the aphasia and STEM communities, etc.).

Leadership Opportunity: We are currently building our Executive Team that will be working closely to play a major role in developing Grise for Aphasia.

    • Résumé/CV: Optional, but encouraged
  • Fill out this brief leadership application (the responsibilities of executive team members still roughly apply)
    • Can submit this after email reply, but also encouraged to complete beforehand.
Grise for Aphasia Remote (Worldwide)
(Positions open for General Lead Team & Video Project Team!) A STEM organization that recognizes the lack of knowledge and attention regarding aphasia - a language disorder caused by neurological damage that affects speech production. We are spreading awareness for aphasia and aiming to encourage others to take action! Currently, our team has the following projects to accomplish this (will definitely have other events and branch out!): Grise has teams work together to research and create videos for largely two audiences: 1) Assisting aphasia patients' needs in partnership with clinicians and aphasia organizations. This way, the videos we make can pertain to the specific needs of patients, which our partners will be knowledgeable of to give a rough framework to base our work on. This may include navigating Zoom events, speech practices, or anything else that you find helpful! 2) Educational and informative videos for students and the general public....
