Second Acts for the Greater Good: Social Venture Partners Seeks Encore Fellows

Friday, November 21, 2014

Social Venture Partners Los Angeles (SVP) launched the Encore Fellowships Program in mid-2014 in partnership with and with support from The Eisner Foundation.  Encore Fellowships are designed to deliver new sources of talent to organizations solving critical social problems by tapping private-sector professionals who are ready for a new stage of work – work that offers a renewed sense of purpose and contributes to the greater good.

SVP is currently matching seasoned professionals (with 15-30 years’ experience) transitioning out of corporate positions with structured assignments (typically 12 months, half-time) at nonprofit organizations, where they help nonprofits build capacity, grow strategically and, ultimately, have a broader impact on their communities. Fellows commit to 1,000 hours of work over 6 to 12 months.  Benefits to Fellows include a $25,000 stipend, learning about nonprofit innovations, challenges and culture firsthand, and also receiving a one year membership in SVP.
