We offer wellness skills to K-12 teachers and other world changers. Our science-backed workshops and curriculum are active, engaging, and rooted in our lived experiences. We say "team-care," not self-care. Join us!
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 ran the D.C. Nonprofit Wellness Pilot in 2018-19, which resulted in the (free) 2020 Wellness Equity report.
There is a ME in TEAM -- and self-care is important, to bring your "best self" to your team. But let's face it, world-changers aren't very good at self-care.
We are good at taking care of others, so let's turn that superpower on each other and build cultures of Team-care, not just self-care.
Wellness at work is more than addressing physical challenges of exercise, nutrition, and rest -- it's also related to mental resilience and team trust.
Let's talk about your team's needs.
We are on this journey with you.
