VAFCC 2018 Regional Workshop Series

This two-part workshop will explore how staff and volunteers can be developed to advance the mission of your organization while also discussing the role of practicing as it relates to the personal health of staff and volunteers as well the clinic's organizational health.

Morning Session:

Developing Volunteers and Staff

Who does your organization need to meet its mission?  Are these key individuals already on staff but need more training, or do you not have these individuals on staff yet and are unsure where to find them?  This workshop will discuss how to access your organization's needs, and discover how you develop your current staff and volunteers to be who your organization needs as well as how to attract and retain top talent.


Afternoon Session:

Self-Care and Stress Management Strategies

Learn simple yet powerful strategies to help you effectively manage your stress levels and take better care of yourself and others through the practice of yoga. During this session, you will learn how to quiet the mind using guided awareness techniques, how to use the breath to achieve relaxation, and how to increase strength, flexibility and reduce stress. 

We will also have a discussion, facilitated by Lakesha Roney and Ari Laoch, both from Health Brigade, to discuss stress as individuals and as part of a team, and how you can help your coworkers and fellow volunteers cope with stress in healthy and productive ways.

Please dress comfortably and be ready to move and actively participate. 

Lunch will be provided. 

No prior knowledge of yoga is required. All moves can be modified for multiple skill levels and abilities.
