When working from home, do you find yourself working longer hours, or stepping back into “the office” to just finish up that one thing? How we set and communicate boundaries helps us fight burnout and fatigue. This session will amplify strategies for establishing boundaries for yourself and communicating them to others.
Join us on Wednesday, February 10, from 11:30am - 12:30pm to hear more about opportunities at City Year!
From City Year's Website (https://www.cityyear.org/about/):
At City Year, we believe that all students can succeed and that developing the skills and mindsets of children and young adults contributes to strong, vibrant communities—outcomes that benefit all of us.
Many students lack access to learning environments and resources they need to thrive in school and in life, due to systemic inequities that disproportionately affect students of color and students growing up in low-income households.
What we do
City Year AmeriCorps members serve in schools all day, every day, preparing students with the social, emotional and academic skills and mindsets to succeed in school and in life.
Developing civic leaders
City Year AmeriCorps members not only make a difference in the lives of students they serve, but also acquire valuable skills that help them and prepare them to be leaders in their communities and their careers.
As City Year continues to innovate alongside our school and district partners, we aim to share what we are learning and contribute to a broader conversation about how to ensure equitable access to learning opportunities for all students.
