Experience Matters connects boomers and non-profits
|21st Annual Bud Shootout Golf Tournament reaches milestone|
Experience Matters (expriencemattersaz.org), a local organization that connects baby boomers with non-profit and social service organizations to improve the quality of life in Maricopa County, announced the graduation of the inaugural Encore Fellowship class.
The class, comprised of 13 individuals, completed a yearlong fellowship with their respective non-profit hosts. Encore Fellowships represent a new life-stage in which experienced boomers find meaningful ways to engage with the community by bringing skills and professional resources to organizations that are often under-resourced.
The organization reports that, nationwide, 31 million boomers indicate an interest in opportunities to use their skills, and that, in Maricopa County, there is significant demand on the part of both boomers and non-profit organizations for such opportunities.
