OUR Mission

About SAGE

OUR Vision

Creating better futures through social enterprises, socially responsible

businesses and community service.

To help create the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders whose innovations and social enterprises address the major unmet needs of our global community.

SAGE - an acronym for Students for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship. It is a nonprofit Transnational Social Movement Organization initiated at the California State University Chico USA by Professor Curtis Deberg. It engages young people in a hands-on learning process on how to create wealth, help others and their communities. Since the adoption of the SAGE Programme in Ghana in 2005, it has shown that it is a potent model for educational reform, youth re-orientation, community service learning and youth employment generation. SAGE Ghana's strategy is to prepare and empower Ghanaian youth through a youth entrepreneurship and community service programme, while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of financial literacy, ethical business practices, civic engagement and environmental awareness.

SAGE Model

Each year, SAGE organizes and hosts a series of regional and national tournaments where teams ofSAGE teens showcase their businesses to a panel of influential members from the business, civicand education communities. SAGE teams are encouraged to identify a SAGE Coach to guide them.
