We’re fans of the great work Encore.org does in creating an “innovation hub tapping the talent of people 50+ as a force for good.” What’s not to love? So, we were honored and surprised when we saw that they included Next For Me in their Encore Network “New and Longstanding Programs Support Encore Transitions”.
The Encore Network is “A coalition of encore leaders and organizations, the Encore Network provides resources, visibility and connections – strengthening members’ work to turn longer lives into an asset.”
What trends are emerging as the Network expands past 100 members? New organizations – mostly for-profit – are launching programs and communities that support later-life transitions. This month I’m highlighting those new programs and reminding you about longstanding Network members that provide their own varieties of support.
Their work powers the encore movement by energizing new waves of experienced adults; the programs also offer resources for your own transition, as well as friends and family members. Many are interested in collaborating with coaches and authors – get in touch if you spot a collaboration opportunity.
In the coverage they described Next For Me as:
Next for Me connects and inspires our generation to evolve post-50 life through new work, a new purpose, or a new social contribution. The leadership team includes Chip Conley, creator of the term “modern elder” and author of Wisdom@Work, The Making of a Modern Elder, to be published this fall. Founder Jeff Tidwell has deep experience launching online communities.
