Wednesday, September 28

Russell Sage College plans a day of service in the Albany and Troy communities called “Sage Engaged” every fall semester. This event is open to all students and the Sage Community. This year, the event will be held on Wednesday, September 28.

Sign up for Sage Engaged

Students can participate on either campus, and in multiple projects. Sign-ups will open in September. Don’t miss out on the chance to make a local impact — spots are limited.

Sage Engaged began as an orientation activity for first-year students, but starting in 2017 the day of service was expanded to include the entire campus community.

The event, held annually, is a chance for students to get to know their immediate community, to become involved, and to learn about local volunteer opportunities.

Russell Sage College has partnered with:

  • YWCA
  • CEO
  • Troy Boy’s and Girl’s Club
  • Joseph’s House
  • Capital City Rescue Mission
  • Beth Emeth
  • Ronald McDonald House
  • Equinox
  • Parsons Child and Family Center
  • and more …

Each nonprofit organization has a specific needs. Students and the Sage community work in shifts to meet those needs. Some examples of service projects include:

  • putting together welcome bags, backpacks and letters
  • cleaning, painting, gardening and baking
  • providing help with after-school and childcare programs
  • painting crosswalks in Troy
