Volunteer Advice Counselor
Do you have wisdom to share? Are you 60 or better and enjoy offering guidance to younger generations?
Members of the Elder Wisdom Circle are seniors who share their wisdom with young advice seekers from across the world. Via the Internet, Elders answer advice requests 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. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Elder Wisdom Circle has more than 600 Elders (aged 60 to 105) 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 are looking for seniors in your area to help expand our national reach. Please visit our site at www.ElderWisdomCircle.org and then the 'Offer Advice' tab on the top of the homepage. All advice providers must be 60 or better, no exceptions. Volunteers must complete an application and screening process.
