Looking for Leaders

The Board of Directors of S.A.G.E. (Senior Adults for Greater Education) is reorganizing and wants to add several new members to the team. Please look to see if you, or someone you know, should be invited to join the Board of our organization.

Senior Adults for Greater Education is a young, fast-growing organization. This is our 10th year of operation. Those who have been supporters can see the growth, expansion and improvement of our programs! This requires active participation by our board members. Our board provides oversight to the organization, but in addition, many of our activities are organized by board members. We have a working board – not just an oversight body! We are seeking a board comprised of enthusiastic people who are hands-on in every way to make this organization a thriving success.

We are looking for people with a variety of talents – including:

o    Evaluation
o    Technology
o    Administrative (ret. Principal or Superintendent)
o    Business
o    Finance
o    Non-Profit Administrator
o    Celebrity Spokesperson for visibility
o    Special Events/Fundraising
o    Gerontologist
o    Child Psychologist
o    Media Publicity and Public Relations

If you enjoy and are skilled or experienced in any of these areas, please contact us and let’s discuss how you can become part of the team!

Process for joining the Board:  If you’re interested in joining or you know of someone we should consider, please call or email the Executive Director, Beryl Katz at 215-357-2332 or email at We’ll tell you more about the organization and the functioning of our board, the tasks and expectations, and how we run Senior Adults for Greater Education. Candidates will tell us about their interests, skills and talents, and motivation to join the board.  After we share information both ways, we’ll jointly decide if it’s a good fit and take it from there.

So please let us know if you’re interested – we’re a good team working on a great mission, and we would welcome you “On Board!” We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
