What is Your Encore Career




Are you someone moving beyond your midlife career yet refusing to fade out or fade away? Are you searching for a calling in the second half of life, a new career that combines not only continued income, but the promise of more meaning – and the chance to do work that means something beyond yourself! Then you’re headed for an encore career.

Learn first hand about the Silicon Valley Encore Fellowship program from Jere King, a recent participant.  Encore Fellowships are structured assignments that place skilled, experienced professionals at the end of their mid-life careers into social-purpose organizations.  Join the conversation and hear more about this exciting program, the personal journey of one Encore Fellow, and how you can become a part of the Encore movement sweeping across the country.
