For Advocates 

(Associations, Researchers, Educators, Journalists, Government Officials, Thought Leaders)


If you’re in greater Boston (or eastern Massachusetts) and you want to be in touch with the latest thinking and research about (1) the growing number of workers in midlife and beyond and (2) how they are addressing the social needs of a world that clearly can use more help, the Encore Boston Network (EBN) should be your next stop.


Boston has long been a center of social innovation, a development hub for the nonprofit sector, at the forefront of efforts to understand what “retirement” and “aging” mean in our changing social matrix, and home to creative ideas for making these changes work to everyone’s advantage.


We welcome you to join us in our focus on intersection of demographic change, longer and healthier lifespans, and the unabated needs in our society and in the world. This sweet spot offers an unprecedented opportunity to leverage the talents and skills of midlife and older adults to address longstanding social needs.
