The former France international helped deliver a string of trophies after signing for Arsenal from Marseille in 2000, and became an integral part of Wenger's 'Invincibles' title-winning side from 2003/04.
Wenger hopes some of that experience will rub off on the youngsters hoping to help drive Arsenal, who are currently top of the Premier League, on to more success.
"Of course, it is a great opportunity," said Wenger.
"He practises with the young players with the under-21 team and I feel always there is no better education than playing with players at that age with top-level players."
Wenger, though, ruled out any suggestion Pires could follow another former Gunner Mathieu Flamini in rejoining the club - just as Thierry Henry had done on loan from New York Red Bulls in 2012.
"Robert Pires will not join us, he was born in 1973, but is still very fit and a great player.
"We are always happy to have him in training, but just occasionally comes in to practice."
