Self-Care for Every Season

During this first community training offered by Together We ROCK, we focused on our top priority – YOU!  There is no one else in the world who can do the work you do in exactly the same wonderful way that you alone can do it.  We recognize this and value each unique individual that has committed their life to building safety and connection for the youngest and most vulnerable in our community.

Learn about six domains of self-care that we believe will bring more joy and peace to every season.  You will leave this training with a personalized self-care plan you choose to commit to using in all seasons – daily, occasionally, and in those crisis times.
