ORGANIZATION: Elder Wisdom Circle

Image_202401101345

Members of www.ElderWisdomCircle.org are older adults who share their wisdom with young advice-seekers from across the world. Via the Internet, Elders answer advice requests at their own convenience from the safety of their homes, offering younger generations personalized and free advice on a wide range of topics - love and relationships, family and child-rearing, career and self-improvement, and more.

As a virtual organization that was formed in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Elder Wisdom Circle has Elders (aged 55 to 95) across North America. The EWC program and our Elders have been featured on ABC, BBC, CBS, FOX, NPR and in such publications as Glamour, the LA Times, Ladies Home Journal, Real Simple, Time & USA Today.

We are one of the largest providers of personal advice, with hundreds of thousands of readers. (We just passed the 500,000th letter!) Our Elders are our lifeblood, and we've heard from them how much meaning and purposed this adds to their daily lives.

We are looking for older adults in your area to help expand our international reach. Please visit the 'Offer Advice' page ( https://www.elderwisdomcircle.org/offer-advice). All advice providers must be 55 or better, with no exceptions. Volunteers must complete an application and screening process.

About Elder Wisdom Circle

Location:

Elders and Advice Seekers Participating Nationwide, via www.ElderWisdomCircle.org, Walnut Creek, CA 94598, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for seniors to utilize their life experience and wisdom to help others by offering thoughtful and helpful advice to younger generations

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 55 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.
