"Higher education can be a key part of preparing for life's encore phase.
To date, 40 colleges have teamed up with the Encore.org Encore College Initiative to create pathways to encore careers in education, health care, social services and the environment. The result? Higher education institutions are creating new opportunities for boomers who want to make a difference in their communities and a salary."
Once awarded an Encore.org grant, colleges help older adults to prepare for careers in education, health, social services and work for a green economy and more.
The Encore.org Colleges Initiative Program holds weekend training workshops, job fairs, and hybrid online and in-person courses.
