Fellowship: SAGE Legacy Fellows

October 21 (fellowship launches)

SAGE also invites older adults to join SAGE’s Legacy Fellowship program. Changing the world, even just a corner of it, takes more than good intentions. If you’re like most people, it can be difficult to decide what to do and how to start. Together, with other Fellows, SAGE’s coach and advisors will help you define an area of need and then break down a solution into small steps. Upon completion, you’ll have turned your good intentions into a project that has changed your corner for the better.

Space is limited, so apply today.
