The INSPIRE Retreat is a leadership development program targeting university students and young professionals who are either currently involved in or aspire to be involved in community development work, specifically targeting the American Shia Muslim Community. The INSPIRE Retreat is part of a larger capacity building initiative that aims to empower young leaders in our community by providing training that revolves around emotional and social intelligence. Over the course of three days, the retreaters will be indulging in various programs that will focus on self-awareness and understanding. While the retreat will have a laid back approach and will include recreational elements, it is designed for serious and dedicated individuals that are striving for self betterment and empowerment to be active members in their communities.
