Elder Wisdom Circle
The Elder Wisdom Circle is an online inter-generational program pairing advice seekers with a network of seniors (“Elders”) who provide free and confidential advice on a broad range of topics. Our mission is to:
• Provide an opportunity for all seniors to utilize their life experience and wisdom to help others.
• Offer thoughtful and helpful advice to younger generations.
• Elevate the value and worth of our senior community.
Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Elder Wisdom Circle includes more than 600 Elders (aged 60 to 105) across North America. Most seeking advice are 15-35 years old, but people of any age can request advice on nearly any topic and will receive a personalized online response. 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 and USA Today. We are one of the largest providers of personal advice, with hundreds of thousands of readers. To date our Elders have responded to nearly 300,000 requests for advice.
