Baby Boomer Fellowships Brings Wealth of Skills to Non-profits

Nov 23, 2011

The Encore Fellows Program has a unique mission that’s sure to make a lasting impact on our society.  The fellowship program matches baby boomers transitioning from successful business careers with non-profits.  The fellowship brings a new type of talent to non-profits while also offering a renewed sense of purpose for retirees.

Encore Fellows are carefully screened for flexibility, commitment and willingness to adapt and learn and are matched with non-profits to ensure cultural fit.  Non-profits are also vetted to ensure readiness to accept and use matched talent.

The Encore Fellowships Network is an ever expanding network of organizations and non-profits interested in transitioning and hosting retirees.  Currently the Civic Ventures’ Encore Fellowship Program offers Encore Fellowships in Arizona, California, New Mexico, New York, Washington D.C. and Oregon.

Encore Fellowships are typically 6 and 12 month opportunities.  Encore Fellows can participant either full-time or part-time, receive a generous stipend, and commit to a minimum of 1,000 hours of work.  To learn more about the Encore Fellows Program and Encore Fellowships please visit:
