WELCOME TO THE ENCORE ACADEMYIt’s YOUR future. How are you going to use it? The largest generation in American history is in transition, moving from midlife to a new stage of life and work. Tens of millions of people between the ages of 44 and 70 say they want encore careers that combine personal meaning, continued income and social impact.

OUR MISSION:To transform the Tampa Bay community and economy by assisting adults of age 50+ to explore options and select a path to an “Encore career” – meaningful paid or volunteer service, career change and/or entrepreneurship.
