We know you don’t adhere to the belief that you have to be in your forties, thirties, or twenties to shake things up! You have built a lifetime of skills and experiences you can share with the community. Nonprofits and companies need YOU to make the change they hope to see in their community. Start connecting with them today and build your own tribe of Encore Network Trailblazers to shake things up in West Michigan.



Here you’ll find the profiles of individuals who are giving back to their families and our community in unique ways.
