Encore Careers

encoreEncore Careers retrains and matches thousands of older people (50 plus) who want to transition out of the corporate sector and into a second or ‘encore career’, often in the not-for-profit or public sector.

Based in the USA, Encore Careers is building a movement to make it easier for millions of people to pursue second acts for the greater good. The idea is to combine personal fulfillment, social impact and continued income, enabling older workers to put their passion for work towards the greater good in the second half of life. The organisation also supports older people to start new social enterprises or charities which use innovative new approaches to tackle some of society’s most pressing challenges – like homelessness, isolation and obesity.
