Discover Your Next Chapter with Encore Cleveland

Magazine September/October 2018 Volunteerism Work & Retirement

Whether you’re a grandparent, the face of retirement is changing. Many of us nearing the end of or already retired from our primary careers want to remain active and engaged in the community.

Retirement today isn’t defined by idle time; it’s an opportunity to experiment with a second act, whether volunteering, working part-time or turning a hobby into a small business. Everyone benefits — both those who stay active and socially engaged in retirement as well as their communities that are made better from their expertise, time and passion.

A Second Chance, a Second Calling

That’s the idea behind Encore Cleveland, launched in 2013 by the Cleveland Foundation to connect and fund a network of organizations that match experienced Greater Clevelanders with an array of meaningful opportunities in the community.

“Looking at the data, 30 percent of the Cuyahoga County population will be age 55 or older by 2030,” says Kathy Hallissey, Cleveland Foundation program director, leadership development. “These people have decades of career experience and knowledge under their belts. What if we could harness their time and talent to fill needs in the community? That’s what Encore Cleveland aims to do.”

Encore Cleveland programs — offered through more than nine nonprofit partners — include volunteer positions, paid positions and educational programs to help Greater Clevelanders discover their next chapter.

How does a one-day volunteer project sound? Or a paid fellowship at a nonprofit organization? Or maybe you want to learn how to launch your own business.

Encore Cleveland offers something for everyone. Get to know the opportunities available through Encore Cleveland and find one that fits your interests and schedule. To learn more, visit ClevelandFoundation.org/Encore, call 216-391-9032 or email [email protected]
