I share this information from the folks at Encore.org, a group administered by Civic Ventures, a nonprofit based in California.
Encore.org, according to its website, "is building a movement to make it easier for millions of people to pursue second acts for the greater good. We call them "encore careers" – jobs that combine personal meaning, continued income and social impact – in the second half of life."
It's not a job agency, just a group that encourages people over 60 who are interested in switching from mid-life careers to nonprofit and public sector jobs. To that end, the group awards prizes annually to people who fit that criteria who craft a new, purposeful career using the experiences they have acculumated.
Nominations for 2014 Purpose Prizes are now being accepted, Top winners get $100,000 each.
