While serving others can be incredibly rewarding, it also can take its toll, especially this year.  So how are you caring for yourself?  How are you finding support for your ongoing role in the road ahead?

Your AWSA Community is here to help. Based on positive feedback from participants of our initial back-to-school Self-Care sessions in recent weeks, AWSA will be offering a 45-60 minute monthly Self-Care session for the remainder of the school year at no cost.  

With the exception of Oct. 12, each offering will be facilitated by AWSA’s Joe Schroeder at 4 PM on the dates shown below.  These Zoom sessions are interactive, so we hope you can attend them in person, but know that each will be recorded to accommodate a variety of schedules.  Please RSVP for any webinar of interest by clicking on the relevant session links below -- and take good care of yourself, everyone!
