The Novato Youth Center is committed to supporting the well-being of their team of promotores and to increasing the sustainability of this critical volunteer corps. Not only did we begin education with the promotores and program staff about secondary trauma, risk and protective factors for community-based workers; but the institution has also taken the courageous step of asking the promotores themselves how it could better protect them from those risks. During our first session, the participants (staff included) completed a baseline self-assessment of levels of satisfaction, workplace burnout and secondary trauma associated with their health promotion duties. An open conversation about the cohort's findings resulted in valuable feedback to the Center of small changes that could be make to reduce risk factors and increase protective factors for the promotores. The staff is using the promotores' input to develop an institutional plan to support self-care. All the participants will be working on creating their own personal plans in our next work session in November. Stay tuned for information about the progress and outcomes of this fascinating project!
