SAGEWorks is a national work readiness program for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender mature workers (ages 40 and older) who need or want to return to the work place.

Through SAGEWorks programs around the country, participants:
- Increase their technology and job skills to remain competitive in the modern work place
- Gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of job search strategies, as well as community-based employment resources
- Receive assistance in increasing their income, thereby improving their financial security and resources
