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.
