OEA Choice Trust’s Colleen Sump (Engagement and Outreach Officer) and Jon Archer (David Douglas Educator) talk with Jesse about grant opportunities and programs to increase education employee well-being. Through its grant programs, conferences, and free online resources, OEA Choice Trust strives to improve the health, well-being, and resilience of district, ESD, and community college staff across all job roles and classifications. Colleen explains how the Trust embraces a holistic model of health and well-being that goes beyond things like exercise and nutrition to also include social, emotional, mental, and financial well-being. As a recipient of a five-year Trust grant, Jon talks about the importance of communicating staff needs to the district, the critical key of leadership buy-in, and the power of partnerships in impacting educator well-being.
