We Are Part of a National Movement
Across this country 10,000 people turn 65 every day and many of them are moving to Palm Beach County. Many want meaning and purpose in their lives, not to fully retire from engagement in life. We have been inspired by the Encore Movement and other Encore programs around the country. To learn more, go to www.encore.org.
Encore PBC offers mid-life adults the opportunity to use their life and work experience in new careers, paid and unpaid, to improve their communities.
How Will We Achieve This Vision?
By challenging conventional thinking about aging and advocating for a new view of older adults as vital, vigorous and vibrant with talent to meet the needs of our communities.
By contributing to a stronger economy by guiding over-50 adults to the resources that will help them create new careers, paid and unpaid, with non-profits, for-profit organizations, and as mentors for emerging entrepreneurs.
By collaborating with community partners to provide resources to the older person to help them continue contributing in meaningful social and economic engagement.
By encouraging local employers to develop pre-retirement programs to help employees transition to new careers and/or volunteer opportunities.
