As an Encore Fellow, you get a 6- to 12-month opportunity and a modest stipend to put your skills to work in a nonprofit organization. The Encore Fellow concept was launched in Silicon Valley in 2009 by Civic Ventures, and Experience Matters has pioneered its expansion in Maricopa County in association with and the Encore Fellowship Network.

How do you know if this program’s for you? We’re looking for highly skilled, experienced professionals ready to transition from primary careers in the for-profit sector and make a significant impact for nonprofit organizations in need of their talent.

Encore Fellows deliver a high value-to-cost ratio for work hosts by bringing experienced, affordable talent to a specific assignment matched to the fellow’s skills and interests. Many become role models for other staff members and evolve into executive coaches and mentors within the organization.
