ENCORE TAMPA BAY- YEAR IN REVIEW 2016
For more than 3 years, Encore Tampa Bay has been assisting boomers to explore options and to retool for meaningful paid work or volunteer services through programs, events and a network of local resources. At the same time, we are helping to strengthen nonprofit organizations, businesses and the economy of the Tampa Bay community by connecting the talent and experience of Baby Boomers with the demand for workers.
Here’s how we made a difference in 2016 in the lives and organizations of Tampa Bay:

- Held 12 Encore Academy sessions and our annual Encore Connect event with more than 400 in attendance.
- Developed the Encore Tampa Bay Network with over 20 local organizations and individuals.
- Helped to launch a pilot program for National AARP- Tampa Bay Caregiver Accelerator.
“Armed with the tools and great ideas I received, I know my life won’t end with my music still in me. Just knowing that there are other boomers sharing my concerns has helped me to move forward.” Vicki Stecher
