Civic Engagement and the Baby Boomer Generation by Laura Wilson

Book Description

Discover a vital source of volunteers for your organization By the year 2020, there will be 65 million people aged 65 and over living in the United States--a new generation of active older adults expecting to use the expertise, experience, and life skills they've gained to make valuable contributions to society in their retirement years. Civic Engagement and the Baby Boomer Generation presents the latest research findings and evaluation studies that help promote a thorough understanding of the programs, policies, and civic opportunities available to people aged 50 and older. This unique book is an essential resource for nonprofit organizations seeking to meet their needs with a generation of volunteers eager to explore new options, work in new capacities, and continue lifelong learning. More than any previous generation, baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) are defying stereotypes about aging while seeking new and meaningful lifestyles. Civic Engagement and the Baby Boomer Generation defines an agenda for future policy, research, and practice to help reverse the well-documented decline in civic engagement in the United States, providing older Americans with opportunities to have an impact in their local, national, and global communities. The book's contributors focus attention on the value of civic engagement in creating vital social capital and social networks. Civic Engagement and the Baby Boomer Generation examines: * current issues and trends in civic engagement * results from senior corps. examinations * expanding youth service concepts * lifelong learning institutes * the relationship between civic engagement and leadership * issues in elder service and volunteerism * outcomes of a national agenda setting meeting * intergenerational relations and civic engagement Civic Engagement and the Baby Boomer Generation is an important source of information for anyone working with nonprofit, government, and corporate organizations concerned with public policy, community affairs, volunteerism, research, practice, and education.
