Encore Talent Works: a new resource for nonprofits

Nonprofit needs + experienced talent = real impact…but many nonprofits and social-sector organizations don’t yet understand the equation. 

The Encore Talent Works toolkit, a dynamic online resource, makes the value of encore talent plain. The toolkit helps social sector leaders, hiring managers and volunteer managers recognize and harness the power of encore talent, with practical, how-to information, expert resources and success stories. 

Created by and Encore Network leaders nationwide, the toolkit represents a collaboration grounded in experience and real-world best practices, offering insights on the unique attributes of encore-stage adults, as well as sections about transferable skills, getting started and recruiting skilled volunteers and employees. Project lead, Director of Network Expansion Betsy Werley, said, “We’re excited to launch the first how-to resource that showcases the value of encore talent, and positions nonprofits to benefit from their experience, passion and energy.” 

Sector leaders including Bridgespan, JFFixler Group, the National Council of Nonprofits and Points of Light, enthusiastically support the Toolkit and are promoting it to their audiences. 

MapAn interactive, searchable map of U.S. encore programs complements the toolkit, connecting organizations with local resources and helping encore-seekers find opportunities.
