6 min read

I’ll take on the world to help someone else. That is part of who I am, and this keeps my life in perspective. Emerging Sage Leader


Since virtually all emerging sage leaders are paid employees (with the exception of a sole homemaker), it is not surprising that their most favored civic involvements are in the workplace.

The leading favored civic agencies are nonprofit organizations, where 28 emerging sages hold the positions of board president, board secretary, executive director, manager, coordinator, chief educator, or volunteer. Those holding paid positions give from 150 to 300 hours of service a month, while unpaid volunteer positions contribute 18 to 60 hours. The favored organizations of these emerging sages include Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Campus Life, Center for the Arts, Center for Nonprofit Leadership, the Exchange, First 5 of Nevada County, FREED, The Friendship Club, Nevada County Arts, Live Healthy Nevada County, The Milk and Honey Café, North Tahoe Business Association, the Script Program, Sierra Commons, Sierra Nevada Mentoring Partnership, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, Project Simplify, South Yuba River Citizen’s League, the United Way, and the Yuba Watershed Institute.

The second most favored civic organizations are Nevada County, Nevada City, and Grass Valley government, where 14 emerging sage leaders hold such positions as chief executive officer, mayor, city manager, city council member, chief financial officer, treasurer-tax collector, department head, program supervisor, program director, and probation officer. The hours given to the positions of mayor and city council member average 50 a month, while the hours worked per month in the other governmental posts average 200.
