Burnout is physical or mental collapse, caused by overwork or stress.
WHAT WE DO
We facilitate workshops to understand the root causes of burnout through open and exploratory dialogue.
In collaboration with experienced practitioners, we help link personal experiences to systemic causes, and learn tangible strategies forward.
We curate resources to support community members in their journeys beyond the workshop.
Our facilitators and community members share their burnout experiences, self-care strategies, and relevant articles with one another.

The Burnout Project (TBP) was co-founded by Leah Bae and Zoya Jiwa in September 2018. Admittedly, because they were burnt out too. You can read the story on why TBP began here.
Initially created as a community for young changemakers to tackle the burnout epidemic, it became evident that burnout was an issue prevalent across industries, age, and culturses.
Burnout is an experience that many go through, yet is rarely discussed. This is a space that invites pause and reflection on why we keep working through cycles of burnout, and how to build healthy habits that honour our boundaries.
