Our programs are designed to support the strengths, strengthen the weaknesses and fill the gaps in our region’s volunteerism ecosystem. They range from inspiring those who are just beginning to volunteer in schools to those who are ready for an “Encore” volunteer experience later in life, and everyone in between.
Inspiring Service provides Cincinnati Cares, a platform that makes it easy to connect with ways to help in our community!
Generation to Generation Cincinnati is a regional innovation partner in a national five year campaign, launched in 2016 by Encore.org. The goal of this national campaign is to mobilize one million adults over the age of 50 in a purposeful movement to improve the lives of children in our country. It is part of our Encore Cincinnati program.
Local to Global
With Local to Global, Inspiring Service illuminates for young volunteers how their local efforts contribute on a global scale, specifically to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The Mission of Encore Cincinnati is to channel the time, energy and talents of experienced adults into solving community challenges and filling unmet needs.
Encore Cincinnati is part of the Encore movement, a national effort to leverage the energy and experience of Americans who seek to fill community needs upon retirement or near the end of their primary careers.
We celebrate individuals, groups, and schools who have dedicated personal time and effort in service to others
We encourage volunteerism as a path to achieving the 17 UN Global Goals for 2030
