Coming Spring 2020

Bring Your Skills and Experience to Managerial and Professional
Careers in the Connecticut Nonprofit Sector

Retooling & Launching in Spring 2020

For nearly 10 years Encore!Hartford and Encore!Fairfield County has assisted nearly 150 corporate professionals move into nonprofit careers. See our Track Record.  We are now retooling the program for a Spring 2020 relaunch to meet the future needs of Connecticut.

New Saturday Immersion Class Design

A traditional weekday morning program for the last ten years, we are redesigning the program to fit into a Saturday/online format to allow individuals with varying goals (immediate employment, engaged volunteering in retirement, and for those planning a career change in the future, but are currently working.) to engage and benefit from this nationally recognized nonprofit career program.

The core focus of Encore!Connecticut remains to assist corporate and public sector professionals transition their skill-sets and experience into successful professional and managerial opportunities (paid and/or volunteer) in the Connecticut nonprofit sector. The program is designed to leverage your professional experience and prepare you for life in the nonprofit arena, whether it is as a strongly engaged volunteer or an employee.

Encore!Connecticut is for you if you seek to:

  • Immediately move from a corporate or public sector position to a full or part-time nonprofit position
  • Prepare for moving into nonprofit work and a position in the future, but are currently employed
  • If you are retiring and seeking to have a strong impact in a volunteer position or consulting work with nonprofits
