This year, it culminates in the Social Innovation Fast Pitch & Showcase on March 22, 2018 at the Wilshire Ebell Theater. The program trains nonprofit leaders to powerfully communicate their story, and connects them with leaders in the business, philanthropic, and nonprofit communities who help them achieve their goals.

Encore Fellow Program

SVP’s Encore Fellows program is run in association with Encore.org, where individuals are exploring second acts for the greater good.  Typical Fellowships are approximately 1,000 hours over one year.  During that time, Fellows earn a stipend and explore a career that connects their passion with their day-to-day work.
