Elder Wisdom Circle

Image_202103160926

The Elder Wisdom Circle is an award-winning online inter-generational program pairing younger folks in need of advice with a caring and empathetic cyber-grandparent.

To date, the EWC has facilitated almost 500,000 one on one interactions and been featured in almost 100 media stories. Our site received about 350,000 annual visits, most are reading advice.

The EWC has played a critical role during the pandemic giving our seniors a safe way to volunteer from home and a place for younger folks to find comforting advice during this crisis.

In July, we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary and want to plan a virtual event to celebrate this milestone. And in September, we want to celebrate National Grandparents Day with a viral campaign of celebrating grandparents everyone who have been separated by their families by the pandemic. We are hoping to collect "the best advice you ever received from your grandparent" through stories and videos that we can post. We are also hoping to allow the community to vote for their favorite piece of advice.

We are seeking an experienced event team member who can help us create virtual celebrations for these new events including merchandise, raffles, and ways for people to participate.

If you have the talent and experience we would warmly welcome the opportunity to learn more about you. Please reply to this post with your relevant experience and any examples of your work you might have.

Thank you for your interest in our opportunity.

Description

We are a web-based nonprofit service organization that pairs online advice seekers in their teens, 20's and 30's with a nationwide network of Cyber-Grandparents, aged 60 to 105, who share their hard-earned knowledge and wisdom. Our Elder members participate individually from their home computers or in groups at retirement communities (with the help of a facilitator). Anyone with access to the Internet can request anonymous advice on any topic and will receive a personalized e-mail response in return. The voice of experience is hip, sincere, and highly sought after by people of all ages; we are the most popular source of free online advice in the country. The Elder Wisdom Circle has been featured on ABC, CBS, BBC, NPR and in many publications including USA Today and Time.
