We ENVISION an end to illiteracy
We EMPOWER our students to realize their full potential

Our proven, inexpensive, effective, and efficient methods used within our programs encourage our students to be literate, confident, and contributing members in the community. We serve:

  • homeless refugee children, newly arrived to Canada from countries impacted by famine, war, and genocide
  • high school students, with a wide range of learning exceptionalities
  • homeless and street-involved youth
  • ***all of our children and youth are from low-income communities
  • We ENGAGE the community

    The Sage Youth programs, under the Excellence in Literacy Foundation (ELF), provide volunteers, community leaders, and educators with literacy teaching tools and training they need to quickly and effectively teach literacy to their students. The Sage Youth program is the model that the ELF follows.
