It wasn’t until months, maybe even a year into the pandemic, when I started seeking articles, podcasts and other resources about burnout out self-care, because I was beyond burnout, and needed self-caring. I didn’t have the answers, and between my MAVA colleagues and MAVA members we were in constant communication and exploration on these two topics, because we have felt or continue to feel this way.
Here are some tips, tools, and resources for you to use for yourself and with your volunteers. Some of these Resources were recommended from Heather Whelpley who presented at MAVA’s Managing Burnout for Leaders of Volunteers, others from my MAVA colleagues, MAVA members, and me.
Don’t forget that MAVA provides a ‘What We Are Reading’ section in the MAVA Monthly. This portion of the monthly newsletter is a list of articles, books, and resources that MAVA staff have read, find helpful, and want to share with you.
