The students of École Voyageur come from two distinct groups: those from military families and those whose parents work in the oil industry, two institutional social networks which have very different gendered representations. In this chapter, I discuss the experience that boys and girls from mobile military familieshave,and draw on the notion of agency to show how these youth contribute to the production and reproduction of the communities in which they are involved. I call upon observations and testimonies collected during fieldwork to show that children of military families at École Voyageur are far from passive actors, but important agents in the creation and maintenance of their gendered social and cultural environment.
