Interested in bringing people together to help each other – and yourself – find an encore career? Here’s our Encore Transition Group Guide. (A great tool for career coaches, too!)

Are you a community activist or a leader at a local nonprofit or other civic group? Use our Encore Toolkit to introduce the encore idea to your community members. We also have versions for alumni professionals looking for ways to engage alumni interested in encore careers and for alumni themselves to introduce the encore concept to their alma maters. All three versions, although enhanced by The Encore Career Handbook, can be used alone.
