I’m a Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) working at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, NY. Thank you so much for organizing these efforts, and putting in so much time. Our team greatly appreciates everything, and you are saving lives. We have a high risk for contaminating ourselves, as 5 people in the department are already positive

Supporting Health Care Workers in China

Jan, 2020

with the world first reeling from the impact of COVID-19 in China—one of our NxJumpers organized a grass-roots effort to get much needed PPE in the hands of medical professionals. Both his parents are doctors in Wuhan and his mother was part of the original team that discovered the virus. Thousands of doctors and nurses were getting sick, and were resorting to makeshift solutions like homemade masks and trash bags to protect themselves while continuing to work in the field.

Helping Organizations Train Resilience

May, 2020 – Current

Next Jump has open sourced their program guide and worksheets as well as partnered with 10+ orgs to help peer groups train on developing awareness and dialing down our behaviors that prevent others from giving us the truth.
We have found in working on ourselves and having trained leaders within military, education, sports and medicine that the foundation of a growth mindset is a balance of humility and confidence. Being able to be open-minded to new ideas, seek feedback, be coachable, while also risk taking and being able to self-advocate. In one post survey, 100% of participants would recommend the program
I’ve been in several resiliency trainings before (classes) – this has been so much more effective. Documenting how I am in my head – feeling less alone hearing what others are struggling with. Without PRT, I would be in a worse state right now – I feel so much more hopeful – empowered to bring up these topics and work on them
This was incredibly valuable. It helped me realize that I had to step up and show that I have the leadership skills and courage to lead. Many thanks for the feedback and believing in me
PRT group – I feel like I finally have the safe space to be honest here.

The importance of
choice

The founder/director of Steady Buckets, a NYC youth basketball non-profit, Macky Bergman has been teaching months of classes to the Perks at Work community on how to help build toughness in kids. Over his career, Coach Macky has coached over 10,000 kids in his 15+ year career and is taking some of his best lessons learned and sharing it with parents.

This session was a GODSEND! I’ve been so lost during this pandemic and attending this meeting has really given me focus. From today’s Meeting I was able to take away lots of ideas how to manage the ideas and where to start. Macky provided lots of tips as well as resources. His East coast vibe really made it feel like we were chatting with a family member ! Will return for more meeting lessons and looking forward to joining COA school ! Our HOST was amazing !
