Rejuvenate Your Passion for Working with Children


MUNCIE, INDIANA (NEWS) - Those who work with children often nurture young people, yet struggle to find time to nourish their own spirits.

To help professionals reconnect with their shared passion for youth work, the Indiana Youth Institute (IYI) is hosting a forum that will explore ways for youth workers to refresh their minds, bodies and spirits.

The forum will feature Nathan Taylor, the wellness coordinator at the Youth Opportunity Center. He is a trained health culture coach and owner of Taylor Wellness Consulting, a business solutions provider that helps business leaders assess their workplace cultures. Youth workers will recharge their batteries during this seminar by learning the benefits of creating a culture of wellness and self-care in the workplace to promote a positive, productive and healthy atmosphere so they can better serve children.

The forum will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 30 at Cornerstone Center for the Arts, 520 E. Main St., Muncie, 47305.

As part of IYI’s Youth Worker Café program, the forum is free and lunch will be served, but reservations are required by 9 a.m. on June 30. RSVP at Reservations may also be made by contacting IYI Statewide Outreach Manager Debbie Jones via phone at (317) 396-2723 or via email at [email protected].

Youth Worker Cafés are designed to bring together local youth workers to build relationships and inspire collaborations that will benefit children. This Youth Worker Café is made possible by Ball State University, Children’s Bureau, Inc., Youth Opportunity Center and IYI.
