WHO WE ARE

Our Roots

The Wisdom Exchange Project was founded in 2020 to address social isolation and loneliness by creating a community committed to promoting brain health through mutually-beneficial intergenerational relationships.

Our Community

Since 2020, WEP has helped cultivate 53 new friendships between our older adult and trainee volunteers!

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
