Senior Spotlight: ENCorps Summit 

The 2nd annual Encore Leadership Corps Summit is comming right up.  The Summit is an annual two day gathering of all ENCorps members at which time they will have a chance to go on learning tours of University programs and centers and attend workshops on revitalizing Maine’s downtowns, raising funds for community projects, how to network effectively, resolving conflict, and using marketing techniques to their benefit.   ENCorps is for people 50 years and older, and gives them the help to get started and the tools to help them achieve these goals. Each year, ENCorps trains Mainers from throughout the state to be ENCorps volunteer leaders. The program focuses on environmental stewardship, grassroots leadership, and community development, with a goal of giving participants the skills, knowledge and guidance they need to make positive changes in their communities.
