August is Self-Care Month at Compass Center!

 Compass Center is welcoming the month of August by celebrating self-care! 

Each year, August is one of the busiest months for staff. Many student volunteers take vacation time before the start of the next school year, leaving program staff to cover those volunteer roles. The team is also hard at work preparing for our multi-day,volunteer trainings in September.

But, we here at Compass Center practice what we preach. We’re not just braving through a busy month, we’re going to celebrate it by acknowledging each small victory and practicing acts of self-care.

Compass Center’s Fun Committee is leading the charge by providing simple pick-me-ups for the staff ranging from fruit-infused water, neighborhood walks, and even a Harry Potter puzzle in a common space to offer a bit of a mental break.

In the words of author Deborah Day, “Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.”
