What are some popular religious orders for young women in the States and Canada

I am the coordinator of a retreat for youth. The topic for our February retreat is vocations and following God’s will. I would like to get more information on different religious orders. It is rare to see or hear about young nuns and sisters around my area but I know they are out there! I tried googling but there is a lot of information and it is hard to navigate! If you can point me to resources, websites or even just names of orders I would be very grateful!



The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist in Ann Arbor, the Dominican SIsters of St. Cecilia in Nashville, and the Sisters of Life in Suffern, NY are very popular and are receiving many vocations.

But the link below has a list of communities of both women and men that are attracting vocations:
