Give Forward Workshop
Saturday, March 11, Portland, from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm (No cost)
We all want to make a difference, and leave the world better than we found it. What role can we personally play to create a better future? Back by popular demand, SAGE is excited to offer our Give Forward Workshop. We will explore strategies for making a positive difference in the world, with emphasis on bringing life to your personal mission.
Intergenerational Volunteering Workshop
Wednesday, April 26, Portland from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm ($10 to help cover brunch)
We each have a generational lens that informs who we are and how we see the world. During this intergenerational workshop, we will explore the differences in world views, motivations and work styles across the generations. We’ll also discuss ways that each generation can volunteer more effectively when together, and share examples of meaningful, intergenerational service opportunities.
Whether advocating for more school funding or stronger action on climate change, grassroots activists know how to effectively organize and engage others to bring about real social change. At this nuts-and-bolts workshop, we'll cover how to be an effective grassroots advocate and explore key strategies to develop campaign messages, build and sustain support, and tips to align your campaign with other social movements.
