Encore Fellowship Host
Could you use a hand?
Beginning in April, seasoned human resource, accounting, program management, IT, sales and marketing professionals who have been vetted and trained for nonprofit employment will be seeking program fellowships at your nonprofit. Fellowships are for a two-month period, full-time. The Fellowship provides your nonprofit with a highly skilled, self-starter professional who can manage, jumpstart, or breathe life into a program vital to your organization.
Encore Fellows will be matched to the needs of your organization and will report to a member of your staff. Workspace will be provided by your organization. Dr. Doe Hentschel, Vice President of Leadership Greater Hartford, will manage the Encore Fellowship program and will work with you every step of the way. Fellows will not be just assigned to your organization; you will have the opportunity to interview them and determine whether they are a good fit for the experience you have described.
Encore Site Visits
Nonprofit teaching locations have been filled, but there are still opportunities for one day job shadowing site visits by our Encore professionals, for the week of March 25.
Site visits allow the Encore Fellow an opportunity to work with a professional in their field of interest for a day, and provide you with the opportunity to see the potential of these seasoned professionals seeking to enter your field of work.
