Sirius is a pilot program offered by carya to girls in grades 10 and 11, in partnership with the United Way Women’s Leadership Council’s All in For Girls initiative.

Our focus for this program is to support girls to reach a place of increased confidence, resiliency, and leadership in their community, with the ultimate goal being that the girls complete high school and successfully launch into adulthood.

The program aids girls in developing life skills and provides them with opportunities to practice these skills through community projects they identify as areas of interest within their communities. Through these experiences, girls will make connections with their peers, community members, and volunteer allies.

Together they will create healthy, more connected communities where all girls and women thrive.

This program is offered in partnership with the Calgary Board of Education in two designated high schools. The program is specifically for girls in those schools only.
