Encore.org is building a movement to make it easier for millions of people to pursue second acts for the greater good. We call them "encore careers" – jobs that combine personal meaning, continued income and social impact – in the second half of life.
While Encore.org is not a job placement service, it provides free, comprehensive information that helps people transition to jobs in the nonprofit world and the public sector.
Civic Ventures, d.b.a. Encore.org, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.

Encore.org (formerly Civic Ventures) grew from a desire to ensure that the second half of life is a source of both individual and social renewal. More >
The work of Encore.org has been made possible over the years through generous support from a variety of foundations and agencies. More >
Marc Freedman, founder and CEO of Encore.org, has been recognized by Fast Company magazine three years in a row as one of the nation’s leading social entrepreneurs. The New York Times described him as “the voice of aging baby boomers who are eschewing retirement for … meaningful and sustaining work later in life.”
