Encore Transition Program

Get Ready for Your Encore Career

An encore career - meaningful work that combines personal fulfillment, continued income and social purpose - is the goal of more and more people in midlife and beyond. The Pace Encore Transition Program consists of three interpersonal workshops and an online component that will help you reprocess your skills for a fulfilling encore career in the nonprofit sector. Whether full- or part-time, project-based, paid or volunteer, encore careers provide the opportunity to put your talent and experience to work for the greater good in organizations that are addressing important social needs.

  • Learn the secrets of successful resume design and the strategy of using social media for marketing yourself and researching job opportunities.
