Wednesday, August 1 (next LAB monthly meeting)
6:00 – 8:00 pm
SAGE – Senior Advocates for Generational Equity – is a Portland nonprofit that engages elders in projects that benefit coming generations. We work together to take the long view on issues relevant to our community. Right now we are seeking new members for our Young Leaders Advisory Board (the LAB), a group of leaders ages 17-30 who meet the first Wednesday evening of every month to identify challenges facing coming generations, and advise SAGE’s board and community of elders on projects and relevant causes. This year, the LAB has prioritized an equity lens to implement across the organization, created opportunities for intergenerational socials, and will survey youth leaders around Oregon about relevant issues. Participants gain leadership training and experience, a platform for activism and advocacy, and mentorship.
