Highly skilled professionals seeking volunteer work in Connecticut's nonprofits

Dear Connecticut Nonprofits and Friends,

Encore!Hartford has received 54 applications from highly skilled and highly passionate professionals from throughout Connecticut who seek to transition their seasoned professional skills and experience for work in Connecticut's nonprofits. There are only 20 seats available for Encore!Hartford’s pilot program. We are now vetting the candidates for their potential in managerial and professional positions in the nonprofit sector.

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.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
