Experience Matters offers your nonprofit both long- and short-term options to leverage the talent and experience of encore careerists.

Encore Fellows bring years of experience and a wealth of knowledge and skills into their assignments—selected and trained to have a significant positive impact on your organization’s mission. While typical assignments run for 12 months, many host organizations have retained their fellows for further work or have even hired their fellows outright. The program groups fellows into cohort groups for networking, support and training. Selection criteria include:

• Eligibility. Host organizations must be members of Experience Matters and attend a two-day Learning Lab workshop.

• Funding. The program fees paid by the host organization cover a stipend for the Encore Fellow. For more information contact Sally Clifford at 602-812-3945.

• Other Considerations. In addition to having an executive leadership commitment and a solid plan to orient, integrate and manage the fellow, host organizations must present a clearly defined assignment with outcomes that are achievable in the allotted time frame.
