A BIG Thank You to our Volunteers

Today is International Volunteer Day and we would love to recognize all of the amazing work our volunteers do for SAGE. The United Nations started this international observance back in 1985 and this year's focus is "Young. Global. Active." While the U.N. recognizes the contributions of all volunteers, they are paying special tribute to youth volunteers. We want to celebrate ALL of our volunteers, young and old, because SAGE volunteers run the gamut.

From our recent Thanksgiving event, where our volunteers spent the day with us, instead of with their own family and friends, to our Friendly Visitors, who make the lives of homebound LGBT seniors a bit easier, to those leading our karaoke nights, our volunteers fulfill a crucial part of our mission -- to improve the lives of LGBT older adults. 

Volunteers are truly the backbone of SAGE. Without them, we would not be able to offer the breadth of services and programs at our main SAGE office and our SAGENet affiliates across the country! We appreciate everything our volunteers do and if you are interested in becoming a volunteer, be sure to check out the options on our site.
