SAGE for YOUTH works primarily with youth-service providers. SAGE for YOUTH believes in helping youth through empowering youth-service providers such as social workers, teachers, counsellors, court workers, therapists, community leaders, guidance counsellors, community health representatives, health directors, education directors, youth leaders, suicide prevention and intervention workers, program administrators, etc.
We believe the best persons to work with youth are the persons in their respective communities and organizations.
We believe much knowledge exists amongst frontline workers in many organizations and communities across the country.
We believe different cultural perspectives on youth at risk must be honoured and validated.
We believe listening to the youth will help us make informed decisions on programming.
We believe the development of a network for frontline workers from diverse cultural, ethnic, geographic, linguistic, professional backgrounds will create a system based on grassroots knowledge and will have infinite possibilities.
