  • If you are a teenager who has been involved with SAGE in the past, or if you are new to the SAGE program, you can learn How to Participate in SAGE by reviewing this PPT presentation

  • If your country already has a SAGE program, you should contact the SAGE National Coordinator or key contact. The coordinator can help you get started.
  • If your country does not yet have a SAGE program, we encourage you to contact the SAGE home office by emailing
  • If you are a business or civic leader, you can serve on a business advisory board or become a SAGE judge. Or if you are a college student, you can become a consultant for a new SAGE team.

The best way to learn about SAGE is to download the SAGE Information Handbook and subscribe to SAGEMAIL.  SAGE means teamwork, involvement and crossing boundaries to make the world a better place!


Small teams of SAGE students in each state or country roll up their sleeves and go to work. Can they really create better future for themselves and their community? Absolutely! We agree with Margaret Mead, who said:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”


SAGE provides a new way of working with secondary schools, by involving college students and successful leaders from the private sector as the high school students complete their activities. SAGE participants strive to create better futures for people in their own communities and across the world. Active involvement is a key to progress, and we subscribe to the saying:

People support what they help create.”

Crossing Boundaries

SAGE cuts across boundaries between secondary education and higher education; between education and business; between business and government; and, most importantly, between countries. One of SAGE’s goals is give all participants a global perspective along with local insight.

Why Not?

SAGE’s vision and mission are based on a quote by Robert F. Kennedy, who said:

“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why…I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.”

SAGE asks, “Why not create better futures? Why not change the world?” And then we strive to do exactly that. SAGE is contributing to a multinational, multilocal world.
