If you desire to work for yourself, or wish to have extra income, or would like to learn the digital skills necessary to land a job in today's digital market, then you should consider taking the DEVA Program.

The DEVA 20-Week Online Training Program consists of 20 mandatory modules delivered once per week, including a Capstone Project, 20 mandatory weekly webinars, and a four-week paid practicum.

If you complete the practicum, you will also have the option to enter into a paid internship to learn digital media skills or learn how to create no-code apps.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Sharon is one of the most organized and professional people that I know. With tight project deadlines and overlapping deliverables, she has been a fantastic resource to our team. Sharon will go above and beyond expectations to deliver exceptional service and products. If you have the opportunity to hire a virtual assistant, I would highly recommend Sharon's company.

~ Danielle Levine, Consultant

Writing procedures was a daunting task in our line of work, utilizing metadata and technologies. With Sharon’s help to make it happen, our team has been enabled with the knowledge to embark on this project. There was a lot of thought and expertise in designing for not only our team, most importantly for the organization and people we serve. But it wasn’t just about the new knowledge. The main benefits came from doing the work, then receiving feedback and interacting with Sharon after the training. Sharon has a calm and logical method of teaching that truly connected and inspired me.

I sponsored DEVA because I am passionate about supporting Indigenous success. Sharon Marshall has created an innovative program that equips Indigenous women in far-flung communities to learn the skills to become virtual assistants. This means that they can work anywhere on their own terms. How wonderful!
