Need + Talent + Time – Are critical elements of SVP. With great need in the community and a wealth of talent and time emerging from retiring Baby Boomers, SVP’s Encore Fellows Program invests invaluable human resources in promising nonprofit organizations.

Encore Fellows are seasoned private-sector professionals who offer professional expertise to a high-priority project for a high-impact nonprofit. Fellows take on roles that deliver significant, sustained impact to the nonprofit host organizations. During the fellowship (typically 1000+ hours over 6-12 months), Fellows earn a stipend, learn about social-purpose work, and develop a new network of contacts and resources for the future.
