SAGE Project

Social Workers Advancing through Grounded Education (SAGE): Building Capacity for Mental and Behavioral Health in Indian Country

The SAGE project recruits, trains, and financially supports Native and non-Native students as they complete 360 hours of their concentration practica.

The Buder Center has developed strong relationships with American Indian & Alaska Native experts in the fields of mental and behavioral health across the Nation. The SAGE Grant, offered by the Buder Center, supports MSW students in completing practica focused on at-risk children, adolescents, OR transitional age Native youth. Through SAGE, the Buder Center provides paid practicums within Indian Country while building capacity for culturally-informed mental and behavioral health treatment for Native populations. 

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity and working in mental or behavioral health in Indian Country, please read the attached brochure and contact Kellie Thompson with any questions.
