ABOUT SAGE

SAGE 
 

Saving Adolescent Girls Everywhere. 

SAGE, a non-profit organization, focused on mentoring adolescent girls who are in underserved communities by providing resources and programs that give social awareness on issues such as teenage pregnancy, domestic violence, human trafficking, and body image, as well as having educational involvement and preparing them for professional/career development.

Every young girl deserves the opportunity to become the most confident, healthy and stable versions of themselves. SAGE is here to lend a hand to the young women who need one when they don't know who else to turn to. SAGE was founded on the principals of Social Awareness, Educational Involvement, and Career/Professional Development in order to uplift the girls in need within our local communities. 

Through our various programs that promote health and wellness, shipping boxed care packages or new mom assistance, SAGE is committed to providing to those in need. 

This four-year program is currently being offered to high school girls ages 13-18 at select schools in the Raleigh area. We are currently accepting volunteer applications to assist with our outreach programs and effectively serving our community.

Tatiana Cooper, President and Founder

Tatiana Cooper, a Chicago native, founded Saving Adolescent Girls Everywhere Incorporated in 2018. After attending North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, Cooper received her degree in Civil Engineering and worked in her career for 5 years.  During her terms at both the government and private sector she realized that she was not content with her workload within her career, but rather be an advocate for adolescents wishing to pursue STEM.  Through her advocacy and strenuous life experiences she realized that she had developed a passion for helping the youth with a variety of issues that were hindering the adolescent population from becoming successful.  She had a desire to make a change and provide social awareness, educational, and professional development to adolescent girls in underserved communities. In December of 2017 Tatiana quit her job as an engineer and took a leap of faith to pursue her profession in the nonprofit industry.  She felt that she no longer wanted to wait to make a difference because she wanted young girls to stop falling between the cracks and wanted to start helping these young girls now, which led to the development of Saving Adolescent Girls Everywhere, Incorporated. Cooper is currently working for Patterson High School as an engineering teacher, head volleyball coach and will be implementing the SAGE mentoring program at Patterson High School this fall as her first school to receive the program.
