Sage Youth - Jeunesse Sage

About This Organization

Our vision is to bring literacy, as well as the hope, power and freedom it provides, to Ottawa’s most heroic children and youth. Our mandate is to provide free literacy, life-skills and mentoring programs to marginalized children and youth, aged 5 to 25. Our belief is that literacy is the birthright of Canada's children. When students begin Sage Youth programs, they are considered to be "children at-risk". Through our programs, they move towards becoming "children in-opportunity". Our purpose is to support them in realizing their dreams.
