By 2030 more than 108 million people in the United States will be over 55, and many of them will find themselves with more time on their hands and without a plan of what to do with it.
A new movement is developing in the United States to connect people who have a wealth of experience, talents, and interests with meaningful work in their second half of life. This effort is spearheaded by the nonprofit organization Encore, the group that awards the Purpose Prize that Nancy Hughes won in 2011.
Encore will be hosting an evening with Marci Alboher in Portland with Social Ventures Partners Portland on April 2nd. Marci and StoveTeam's Nancy Hughes will be speaking about their 'encore careers,' ways to find your purpose and passion, and resources to connect you with groups that fit your interest.
