Creative Sage™ logo

Is your community college opening doors to encore careers?

Civic Ventures will provide up to 10 grants of $25,000 each to community colleges that are finding ways to unleash the power of baby boomers as a workforce for social good.

Colleges that receive grants will be leaders in the effort to help people over 50 transition from midlife careers to “encore careers”–purpose-driven jobs that meet critical needs in America’s communities.Specifically, grants will be awarded to community colleges that are creating innovative ways to prepare baby boomers for careers in education, healthcare, and social services.

Grant proposals are due May 1st. Let’s revolutionize retirement now, and for future generations, and put those Baby Boomers to work for good causes!

The Community College Encore Career Project is sponsored by Civic Ventures—a think tank and incubator generating ideas and inventing programs to help society achieve the greatest return on experience—and is funded by the MetLife Foundation.

Fast Company magazine selected Civic Ventures as a Winner of its 2007 Social Capitalist Award. To learn more, visit http://www.civicventures.org.
