We are working with schools to bolster educators' immune systems and soothe their stress levels. We'll focus on DC but share our successes (and failures) freely nationwide via YouTube and social media. And of course we preach "Team-care" more than Self-care (which is never enough, especially for teachers). Please support our new nonprofit by giving a tax-deductible gift that supports school wellness in this challenging year.
We hope you can support our journey to nonprofit status! Watch the video for a quick history of our work and help us support teacher wellness with a donation by 12/31/21.
Nonprofit Wellness is dedicated to
reducing stress to improve employee well-being & retention
at schools and nonprofits in DC and nationwide.

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) runs Spark, an online wellness platform focusing on teachers.
Our sessions promise brain science, interactive facilitation, facts, personal stories, and practical skills, all designed to build greater resilience.
From an hour-long Skill-Shop to a multi-month work-culture intervention, we've got the programs, workflows, and heart to help you and your team take care of each other.
We've also got free downloadable tools in two languages. Check them out:
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 onto 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're on this journey with you.
