Nerdy Nonprofit Nights: Compassion Fatigue & Burnout Prevention

In January 2020, we will make sure we are all equipped to start another year off the right way: by learning about compassion fatigue and professional burnout in the nonprofit sector, and the self-care techniques that can be deployed to prevent those things.

Karissa Garr, MFT LCSW working at FACT Nevada, and Trauma Recovery Yoga executive director Erika Vilar are January 2020's guest co-hosts!

Please invite someone you know that works (themselves too hard) in the nonprofit sector, and bring them with you.  We hope to see you there!


5:30 PM - 6:15 PM: Free-space Social Time

6:15 PM - 7:00 PM: Circle Up: Topic Talk (loosely structured)

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM: Friendship Power Hour (hang out, have fun)

Nerdy Nonprofit Nights is powered by YNPN Southern Nevada.  

Be sure to join us January 23rd at Cornish Pasty Co!

What is Nerdy Nonprofit Nights?

Presented by N³ and powered by YNPN So. NV, Nerdy Nonprofit Nights are once-a-month social hours with a learning problem!  Each month, employees of Nevada nonprofits spend an evening over food and drinks finding inventive ways for local charities to work together more. It's a loosely-structured yet highly-productive social setting.

Each mixer has a learning theme led by an experienced professional. You can attend because you have questions about the theme, but you can also just show up to meet other nonprofit professionals and talk about anything else:

Maybe just talk about what's going on at work! Grant deadlines dragging you down? Think you're suffering from compassion fatigue but don't want to talk with the coworkers about it just yet? Perhaps you want advice about with a particularly hard-to-manage volunteer on a night when the learning theme is 'How to Ask For Donations With Confidence'.... Whatever it is, come and benefit from sympathetic ears of other nonprofit professionals after work, and just maybe you'll also get a little professional development accomplished while you're at it!

Our recurring tongue-in-cheek price of admission fee is:

  • Bring one person who works in the social sector who has never been to one of the mixers before, or
  • Show up with one piece of knowledge or advice to share. That piece of knowledge is written down on a piece of paper and given to the host of the evening when you arrive, and will be read along with the night’s 3-minute ‘briefing on the topic’, or
  • Show up with one industry related question, or
  • Do some combination of the above three options because why the heck not?
