Since its inception in 2009, Sages and Seekers has reached over 6,000 teens and seniors. Their programs have been implemented across the country in private & public schools. This includes universities, local senior centers, and youth-serving agencies. Furthermore, their virtual program has an international reach, engaging participants in countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, and Australia.
Their 8-week program can be integrated into a class curriculum, such as English, history, humanities, or creative writing. They can also be offered as an extracurricular club as a way for students to fulfill their community service requirements.
“Shattering stereotypes allows us to connect across divides and connection is vital for creating a meaningful life. When we take the time to look deeper than the exterior of our fellow man (or woman), the stories of success, failure, joy, and suffering live. Then we are able to connect on a deep human level. Going beyond tolerance to embracing humanity. That is where personal and global healing resides.”
Tune in to hear Elly’s story and how she is making a difference for so many people!
