Members of the ElderWisdomCircle™ are seniors who share their wisdom with young advice seekers from across the world.
Via the Internet, Elders answer advice letters at their own convenience, offering young readers personalized and free advice on a wide range of topics - love and relationships, family and child-rearing, career and self-improvement, and more.
If you are age 60 or over and looking for a way to help others, please consider joining the hundreds of seniors who participate in this noble cause.
The ElderWisdomCircle™ (EWC) is the only service organization that gives seniors the opportunity to share personal advice in a private and convenient online setting.
- Use your life experience to help others
- Participate on your own schedule and pace
- Foster inter-generational dialogue
- Belong to one of the most popular advice services on the Internet
Elders provide caring, supportive, and empathetic advice based on their own background and experiences. On the main page, you will find a link to [Read Advice]. We suggest that you read other letters to get a sense of the type of advice that Elders provide.
Elders answer letters at their own convenience and may participate in one of three ways:
Orientation, instructional documents, and ongoing support are provided.

The following is what some of the Elders have to say about their experience. (We also encourage you to browse the [ Feedback and Kudos ] page to see the value of the ElderWisdomCircle™ to our advice seekers.)
"If you like to solve problems...give advice to people that need help, you can do this through the EWC and you don't have to be an expert in anything but your own life."
"The EWC makes it possible for me to share all the knowledge I have gained through the years I have lived. Think of all the people I am helping."
"Whenever I encourage others to join up, I make it a point to emphasize that their experiences in life have given them a perspective that others don't have. And that having dealt with these experiences - successfully or not - has given them wisdom which they can pass on to help others have an easier time in life."
"EWC allows me to do my service work whenever I can squeeze in the time, rather than having to go to set meetings or activities."
"Who hasn't "talked back" to Dear Abby? And giving advice to younger people through the EWC is something you can do on your own time. If you want to answer letters at 3AM and sleep until noon, that's OK."
"Where else could I be of service without leaving home and without being tied down to a service position with a regular schedule? This is a terrific service organization to support."
