Stress can reach every aspect of life, whether professional, personal, or social. As an afterschool professional, you likely also feel the stresses of youth in your care, compounding your own stress. You serve as a caring, stable adult to youth and are vital to their participation in afterschool.
To ensure you provide youth with the best care possible and are responsive to their needs, it’s essential to place importance on your own well-being and self-care.
The Afterschool Professional’s Guide to Self-Care provides information on the basics of self-care, in addition to practical self-care actions and strategies for managing your mindset to cope with stress.
