Alliance for Strong Families and Communities
Milwaukee, WI
Posted: 2 Mar 2017

The Alliance is looking to hire a seasoned professional (age 50-plus) into a grant-funded, 1,000 hour-per-year part-time fellow position to support our participation in Encore.org’s national campaign Generation to Generation and the oversight of the Alliance’s Second Acts for Strong Communities initiative.

This is an opportunity for an experienced professional to explore a new work environment, make new connections, engage with a diverse network of social sector organizations, and acquire new skills. This is a one-year stipend position, with the possibility of extending one to two years.

The Generation to Generation campaign and Second Acts initiative have the following aims:

  • Increase the number of paid and unpaid opportunities available for adults age 50-plus (“encore talent”), working to improve the lives of vulnerable children and youth within the human-serving nonprofit sector.
  • Grow the number of intergenerational organizations within the Alliance network (organizations that support both intergenerational workforces and intergenerational programming in their community).
  • Increase national/network awareness of and interest in creating “encore” opportunities in support of youth through targeted marketing efforts.

Last fall, the Alliance implemented 10 Second Act demonstration sites within its 450-member network, all working to actively leverage older adults in its workforce and direct service programs. Over the next two and a half years, the Alliance and its evaluation partner will assess the viability and impact of these older adult-focused human capital talent models, and create a framework for bringing the initiative to national scale.

This fellow will support the Alliance to meet the goals of the initiative by:

  • Supporting program operations: Assisting the director of intergenerational initiatives with implementation, maintenance, and overall administration of the Second Acts initiative across the Alliance membership. This person will use their knowledge and experience to provide technical assistance and one-on-one coaching across our 10 sites to help members work through culture-building issues, recruiting techniques, onboarding, management approaches, and marketing strategies to help our sites effectively integrate encore talent into their human capital strategies.
  • Building Alliance home office capacity: Work with Alliance human resources and leadership team to assess and identify Alliance human capital needs and talent development opportunities.
