Sylvie Horan, Connects & Passages Manager

Sylvie is the Program Manager for both the Connects and Passages programs. She has 27 years of years of work experience leading and developing programs targeting vulnerable children and adolescents with mental health and addiction issues, those who have experienced trauma, as well as young offenders. She is a strong believer in not only building capacity within her team, but also ensuring that youth involved in these programs thrive.

Prior to her arrival at Enviros, Sylvie was the Provincial Project Manager of an initiative that involved working collaboratively with over 30 organizations to develop and implement a provincial census-style survey with the purpose of collecting data to design programs that best benefit youth in schools and communities.

In addition, she also spent 15 years counselling students and creating programs for youth identified with severe behaviour and/or emotional trauma coupled with learning difficulties at the Surrey School District in British Columbia.

Sylvie is a graduate of Simon Fraser University and holds a degree in Psychology. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, learning about new cultures (she speaks 4 languages), indulging in ethnic cuisine and spending time with her family.
