Connecting Circles

Welcome! 10C Connecting Circles are safe free opportunities for older adults and seniors in Guelph and Wellington County to virtually connect with people in their community. These weekly zoom calls are meant to bring adults and seniors together, encourage intergenerational sharing and bring some joy into peoples homes. 

These are relaxed discussions and workshops meant to provide everyone 50+ with a new way to reach out to members of their community in a fun and safe setting. See our weekly lineup of topics below!

Circles are sometimes structured like a workshop,  a presentation or just a discussion. If you have questions about the program, or are an older adult or senior who is interested in leading a circle topic, please contact [email protected]

You can join us week after week for engaging conversations; 10C will be hosting 4 Connecting Circles every week at the same times:

Mondays 7:00pm-8:00pm

Wednesdays 11:30am-12:30pm

Thursdays 1:00pm-2:00pm

Fridays 7:00pm – 8:00pm

Immigrant Storytelling with the Guelph Storytellers Guild
