SAGE is the country’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender older adults. SAGE is a national organization that offers supportive services and consumer resources to LGBT older adults and their caregivers, advocates for public policy changes that address the needs of LGBT older people, provides education and technical assistance for aging providers and LGBT organizations through its National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, and cultural competence training through SAGECare.
Volunteers are the backbone of SAGE. Without volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to offer many of the programs and services that are so important to enriching the lives of LGBT older people. No matter what type of volunteer activity you choose, volunteering is a great way to get involved with SAGE. SAGE offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunitites, such as friendly visiting, event volunteering, clerical support, participation in SAGE committee and other programs.
