EncoreOC aims to strengthen the movement that taps into the skills and experience of those redirecting their passions to accelerate nonprofit success and improve their local communities.


Creating a Culture of Service for a Better Orange County.


To enrich people’s lives by connecting adult volunteers to nonprofit needs, mission, and service.


This vision is rooted in the concept of “generativity” and characterized by individual renewal, legacy, and social impact. We view the vast, active, and healthy baby boomer population, along with individuals making transitions in their professional careers, as an untapped and critical windfall of talented human capital ready to make meaningful change. With over 766,000 residents in Orange County belonging to this vibrant demographic, EncoreOC is ideally positioned for service-minded individuals seeking their next transition in life to create purposeful solutions that make the world a better place to live for future generations. Join us in the movement and discover your Encore!
