For Encore Seekers

If you are eager to use your experience and skills to help a social purpose in your community, consider applying for an Encore Fellowship.
Colleges and universities are offering encore programs to experienced adults acquire new knowledge and skills that employers need, gain credentials and prepare for successful transitions to roles with social impact. Encore initiatives in higher education take vastly different approaches, with some focusing on training or credentialing for specific roles and others providing a “gap year” of sorts for people who want some time and support to help figure out how best to plan for and move into an encore role.
