National Volunteer Week

It’s National Volunteer Week!

April 15 – 21, 2018 is National Volunteer Week and Sagesse is especially grateful to all our volunteers who donate their time to empower individuals experiencing domestic violence across Alberta. Over the past year, more than 150 volunteers have donated more than 5000 hours to empowering individuals, organizations and communities to break the cycle of violence. Their generosity has impacted over 700 people as part of our mission to break the cycle of violence.

Volunteers at Sagesse wear many hats: They assist with delivering our peer support programs dedicated to empowering women who may be at risk of, or are experiencing abuse; they help with administrative tasks in our office; they participate in community events on behalf of Sagesse to help raise awareness around our programs and initiatives – just to name a few things! In short, we don’t know what we’d do without our wonderful volunteers, so we want to say a very big THANK YOU!

Sagesse is always looking for volunteers who have a passion for giving back and a love for curating healthy relationships to end domestic violence. Learn more about the many volunteer opportunities available at Sagesse and read more about our volunteer wellness program on our website at

Family Violence Prevention Month

November in Alberta marks Family Violence Prevention Month.  All across the province individuals, organizations and communities are using this month as an opportunity to draw awareness to the issue of domestic violence and the role that we all can have in preventing it.  As part of our #ABFVPM activities Sagesse is hosting our 6th Annual Eat Play Love event. Eat Play Love is all about pampering and indulgence – while raising funds for Sagesse’s programs and services that empower people, organizations and communities to break the cycle of domestic violence.

Eat Play Love offers the opportunity to pamper yourself with two mini-spa services of your choice.  Amanda Bach RMT had this to say about her involvement with Eat Play Love:

“As a Registered Massage Therapist, I firmly believe that creating a safe space for awareness and allowing healing to happen can have substantially positive effects.  I am honored to contribute my skills alongside a group that is taking real action to end domestic violence. 

The support system that is created within Sagesse astounds me and I’m looking forward to this year’s Eat Play Love event. I always leave feeling empowered, respected and supported.”
