Encore.org makes it easier for millions of people to pursue “encore careers”, second acts for the greater good — jobs that combine personal meaning, income and social impact in the second half of life. While Encore.org is not a job placement service, it provides information that helps people transition to jobs in the nonprofit and public sector.






Encore Fellowships deliver new sources of talent to organizations solving critical social problems by matching experienced professionals with social-purpose organizations in high-impact assignments. During a six to 12 month fellowship (at half to full time), Fellows take on roles that bring significant, sustained impact to their host organizations while earning a stipend, learning about social-purpose work, and developing a new network of contacts and resources for the future.


In 2014, over 250 Encore Fellows in 35 metropolitan areas are working at nonprofits and public agencies, building their capacity to create change. The Encore Fellowships Network offers opportunities in CA, Florida, New York, Oregon, New Mexico, Massachusetts and Washington D.C.
