Also, YAY, we were chosen for a CityBridge Education residency, supporting more wellness for DMV teachers.
Moving Dialogues is a powerful way to come together, experience each other’s perspective, and create deeper meaning. In these uncertain times, we need to ground ourselves in movement that unsticks the body and mind. No experience necessary for this 30-minute online class. Friday, 11/20 at 1pET.
So you think you can't juggle? We beg to differ. You are already juggling a lot. And now, using plastic bags or scarves, circus expert Kevin O'Keefe will teach you (object, not task) juggling, in just 45 minutes. Wednesday, 11/25 at 1pET.
Tyecia and Gabby are public education experts and also fitness influencers. They are combining their superpowers for a music-infused online "battle" (taking turns working us out) benefiting a cause they will have to agree on. Give what you can and come sweat! Sunday, 11/29 at 4pET.
Nonprofit Wellness is a social enterprise (founded in 2018) dedicated to helping educators avoid burnout, and helping nonprofiteers improve workplace stress.
We promise an inspiring training experience and helpful tools. Tyecia Powell (L) is a veteran educator and Susan Comfort (C) is a career nonprofit leader. Gabby (R) is at Harvard now, but she still trains with us, too.
We promise brain science, interactive facilitation, facts, personal stories, and practical skills, all designed to build greater resilience.
Nonprofit Wellness brings physical, mental and team health tools to the nonprofit and K-12 school sectors. We ran the D.C. Nonprofit Wellness Pilot in 2018-19, which resulted in the (free) 2020 Wellness Equity report. Today, Nonprofit Wellness offers a buffet of online wellness trainings, coaching and “skill-shops” to boost health, morale and fun at any workplace or conference.
We help you build a culture of well-being that makes your team more effective.
Workplace well-being is more than the physical aspects of exercise, nutrition, and rest -- it's also related to mental resilience and team trust.
Being healthy takes both self-care and team-care.
Unfortunately, world-changers don't do either very well.
Let's talk about your (team's or school's) needs.
We are here to support you.
Our Wellness Equity report lays out five findings from the six-month study, and five recommendations.
Consider a gift to our "D.C. Nonprofit Wellness Fund" (hosted at the Greater Washington Community Foundation) to sponsor DMV-based schools and nonprofits learning how to be less stressed in an ever-changing world.
We serve any team of humans who want to resist coronavirus/flu and do their best work together.

"That was an awesome wellness session! I enjoyed the poll shares and chat shares and it was nice to do breakout groups-- that was way less awkward than a big group." (teacher at DC public charter school)
"This was my favorite of the wellness sessions we've had because it was so specific and helpful in giving concrete strategies. I appreciated the background information on what burn out looks and feels like and the opportunity to assess where we were at." (teacher, DC public charter school)
"They gave us a list of 15 bite size things that I could add to my life to boost my immune system/improve my health that I am excited to implement. I particularly enjoyed the 2 minute meditation that allowed me to be in a space of mindfulness after a long day." (teacher, DC public charter school)
"I thoroughly enjoyed this session because it's imperative to ensure this area of your life is in tip to shape, since it affects how well your performance is in the classroom. You want to be the best you possible every day!" (teacher, DC public charter school)

“We have a responsibility to do better by people than simply telling them at the point of burnout to go rest and renew and then come back to the same toxicity that depleted them.”
