This is a nine-month leadership development program to train you or your team to design and launch a community benefit project for younger and future generations.
Together, with other fellows, SAGE’s coach and advisors help you define an area of need and then break down a solution into small steps. Upon completion, you’ll have turned your good intentions into a project that has changed your corner for the better.
The 2018 Legacy Fellowship begins in October of 2018, and will end with a closing dinner and ceremony on June 20, 2019.
Your Legacy Fellowship includes a one-day retreat, nine evening workshops and a closing dinner. You will prepare an action plan in the first three workshops, and share ideas and progress in the remaining six. At each workshop, you will learn from your coach and work in small groups to complete short exercises and help others overcome obstacles. Below is a summary of the curriculum. The retreat is all day and the Wednesday workshops are from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
