If you manage volunteers, or are part of an organisation that relies on volunteers, sign up now to a free online workshop to help you better support others and recharge your own batteries when it comes to volunteering.

“As the airline staff always say, put your own oxygen mask on FIRST. Volunteer Managers often have to manage others in a crisis, and are vulnerable to burnout and overwhelm,” said Lisa Richards from Volunteer Central Vic.

“This upcoming session is all about boosting your energy and looking after yourself, especially after the exhausting year we have all experienced,” said Ms Richards.

“We will cover burnout and the signs to look out for, getting the support you need to help yourself and your volunteers as well as different ways and techniques to practice mindfulness,” she said.

The workshop Help Yourself: Avoiding Burnout for Volunteer Managers, is presented by Volunteer Central Vic and Omni Mindfulness. It is final event on the 2020 Volunteer Training Calendar developed by Mount Alexander Shire Council and Volunteer Central Vic.

“Volunteers have been particularly hard hit due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic,” said Rosalie Rogers, Council’s Acting Manager Community Partnerships.

“These sessions offer an opportunity for our generous volunteers to reconnect with one other while building new skills,” said Ms Rogers.
