What is Kardivas?
Kardivas is a girls enrichment program in the Lake Travis ISD that exists to teach and encourage young girls that they are uniquely created with a purpose, that they have integrity and worth, and that they have something valuable to contribute.
Kardivas comes from the Greek word “kardia” which means heart, or seat of emotions. “Divas” stands for Devoted, Inspired, Virtuous, Authentic, Sisterhood. Kardivas is a character club for girls, where they can get real with each other. It is purely voluntary and every girl is invited. Girls may join the club at any time during the school year and can register at https://www.ltisdschools.
