The Circle of Elders is a Nationwide Network comprised of volunteer Seniors aged 60-97. Elders participate individually from their home computers or collectively at a senior community. Our Elders represent a richly diverse patchwork of life experience and wisdom.

ABOUT US: A FREE service providing practical advice and guidance from empathetic volunteer seniors. Please think of us as grandparents to the cyber-world….

Need personalized advice on most any topic? You may request personal advice on any issue, however the circle is unable to offer medical, tax, investment or legal advice….

Elder Wisdom Circle is organized as a IRS 501(c)3 non-profit association comprised of the Elders (volunteer seniors) who offer advice and our support staff. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area with Elders all over North America. We are one of the largest providers of personal advice anywhere. The mission of our association is to promote and share elder know-how and accumulated wisdom. We also have a goal of elevating the perceived value and worth of our senior community.
FREE Advice: Our Elders can help with most any problem providing a personalized reply to each request. Our service is totally confidential and easy to use. …

To become an Elder one must be at least 60 years of age, complete an application and screening process. Elders participate individually from their home computers or as part of a collective group at locations such as an assisted living community….

    My interest in your organization was piqued by a blurb in “The Week” publication. I would like to become a functioning member of this Circle of Wisdom since I am a semi retired psychologist with an extensive background in various sub jects; music forensics, art, international travel, etc. Any contributions I can offer wold be pleasurable for me.

    The way to volunteer is to contact them directly. They have a form on the page here.

    Under “Email type” they really mean “what is the subject of your inquiry”. Use the drop down menu to find “Join in the Circle”. Fill in the rest of the form and submit.

    Their analog address is:
    Elder Wisdom Circle
    506 Tampico
    Walnut Creek, CA 94598
    (925) 945-8814
