The Encore Prize: Generation to Generation Challenge $100,000 in Prize Money Will Be Awarded
Millions of people want “encore” roles — paid or pro bono work that combines skills, smarts, experience and social purpose. Their experience can be a windfall in addressing the multiple challenges holding back youth. It’s a challenge ripe for innovation.
The Encore Prize: Generation to Generation Challenge seeks applications from organizations and individuals who are thinking creatively about how to harness the skills and experience of encore-stage adults — people 50+ — in support of young people. Applications are open to ventures from all sectors (nonprofit, government, for profit) as well as individuals with a proven record of launching successful ventures. The Encore Prize invites applicants of all ages and backgrounds.
Sponsored by Encore.org, a nonprofit dedicated to building a better future for future generations, the Prize will award five finalists personalized coaching, opportunities to pitch potential funders and a year of ongoing support. Two winners will split $100,000 in prizes.
The Encore Prize applications are open March 27 – May 7, 2017.
