Our Mission

To unite youth and seniors in an effort to enrich education and leave a legacy for future generations.

  • Our Program

    For over two decades, we have been perfecting our program – from developing a nearly 100% successful matching process to educating volunteers, teachers, and administrators on how to get the most out of their relationships. Our support staff is here to make sure that volunteers are recruited, interviewed, trained, and then connected with the opportunities where they will be most successful. We encourage both our volunteers and staff to provide feedback that will contribute to the success of the program.

    Our volunteers are followed throughout the year with check-ins to make sure that the match works for both the volunteer and the teacher. Our manual is customized for each school and provided for our volunteers so that expectations and responsibilities are clear and concise. A contract is signed by the volunteers to formalize and acknowledge the understanding of the procedures and policies

  • The Benefits

    Our administrative board of volunteers is constantly pursuing the grant opportunities that allow us to offer our program at a minimal cost to the districts, as we understand the impact of budget constraints. The cost of a volunteer coordinator can be a substantial annual expense. The S.A.G.E.™ program offers the same service – in addition to our years of experience – at a significantly lower cost to the district.

    Utilizing the expertise of the older community members for the benefit of the schools allows all community members to feel connected and a part of the educational process! At the conclusion of the school year a celebration is provided to commemorate the successful relationships that were formed or deepened throughout the year. This furthers the commitment of our volunteers and their teacher partners to continue in each successive year.
