As the airline saying goes “put your mask on before helping others.” This couldn’t be more true for volunteer management professionals. But, why do we continue to put others’ needs before ours?

Tobi Johnson, founder of VolunteerPro, will also discuss best practices for setting professional boundaries and reducing stress, based on research and informed by her years of experience working with high-risk populations.

  • The most recent research on volunteer manager burnout
  • Why self care is an ethical imperative for those in the helping professions
