Empowering Unique Self for Effecting Community Good: A Mixed Art-Based Program

Organized by Neivin Shalabi, PhD

Self-awareness is essential to build strong characters, live with purpose, understand our relationships with others, explain our successes and failures, recognize our strengths and limitations, and lead with confidence. This free 18-hour professional development program aims to enable teenagers and adults to develop self-awareness through art-based workshops.

 This program enables you to:

  • Recognize your unique talents
  • Decide on your personal and professional goals and develop plans to achieve them
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Make connection and expand your networks
  • Enjoy complimentary snacks/food
  • Earn a certificate from Niviana Academy for Educational Training and Consultation


  • Moderate English language skills
  • Participation in all the program workshops

 Please note: registration for this series means attending all six workshop events.

Spaces are very limited. Registration closes on October 4, 2021.
