Girl Power in the New Year
The girls are back!  
For years, girls and parents have been telling us that the Girl Power summer camps were too short! We heard you, and launched an after school program last October. They're learning about gender, friendship and conflict, which you can read more about on the blog! 
The program starts up again on January 5th from 3:30pm-5:30pm. This is a free, drop-in program for girls 10-13 years old.
If you're interested in signing up, please contact Sarah at 403-264-1155 or

Have Questions About Immigration?

with any questions or to volunteer.
