Chapter System Explained

The IYNA Chapter system is divided into 2 levels: Chapters and National Chapter Networks (NCNs).

Chapter: IYNA chapters generally center around schools, colleges, or communities, and comprised of relatively small groups of students. Each chapter has autonomy over its leadership and activities. Requirements to become a chapter are flexible; chapters need to dedicate a substantial amount of time to neuroscience and are recommended to have an adult advisor. For more information about chapters, see the IYNA Chapter Handbook.

National Chapter Network (NCN): NCNs oversee chapters and manage IYNA's ground-level operations in their respective countries. NCNs also hold country-wide events that are geared toward the students in their country. If your country does not currently have an NCN and you are interested in starting one, please contact us.
