Chico State Mentors 2019
SAGE has three key components: curriculum, competition, and mentoring. In the US, SAGE’s home office is located at California State University, Chico, also known as Chico State. Chico State has a large group of talented university students who are always available to provide help. We call these students SAGE mentors.
All SAGE mentors are certified to teach the “Turning Risk into Success” (TRIS) course. Students are primarily undergraduates from the College of Business, although other majors include Mechanical Engineering, Education, and Communications. SAGE was founded at California State University, Chico, in 2002, and became is an official student organization. SAGE mentors provide mentoring services to teenage entrepreneurs. Under the direction of Chico State mentors, SAGE teens use their school learning to become self-reliant, create wealth, and help others.
The word sage is defined in Webster’s Dictionary as wise, proceeding from wisdom, well-judged. SAGE has a successful and dynamic method for imparting business skills and wisdom to youth. Under the direction of their Chico State mentors, our participating SAGE teens launch and run their own real business ventures in teams. The result? Our teachers become empowered entrepreneurship instructors. Our teens become social change agents. And our business leaders and university students become mentors in their own communities and help support the local education system.
